[BLOCK] ll_rw_blk: Enable out-of-order request completions through softirq
Request completion can be a quite heavy process, since it needs to iterate through the entire request and complete the bio's it holds. This patch adds blk_complete_request() which moves this processing into a dedicated block softirq. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de>
