[PATCH] fix ordering on requeued request drainage
Previously, if a fs request which was being drained failed and got requeued, blk_do_ordered() didn't allow it to be reissued, which causes queue stall. This patch makes blk_do_ordered() use the sequence of each request to determine whether a request can be issued or not. This fixes the bug and simplifies code.
