block: add request submission interface
This patch adds blk_insert_cloned_request(), a generic request submission interface for request stacking drivers. Request-based dm will use it to submit their clones to underlying devices. blk_rq_check_limits() is also added because it is possible that the lower queue has stronger limitations than the upper queue if multiple drivers are stacking at request-level. Not only for blk_insert_cloned_request()'s internal use, the function will be used by request-based dm when the queue limitation is modified (e.g. by replacing dm's table).

+ *
+ * Description:
+ * @rq may have been made based on weaker limitations of upper-level queues
+ * in request stacking drivers, and it may violate the limitation of @q.
+ * Since the block layer and the underlying device driver trust @rq
+ * after it is inserted to @q, it should be checked against @q before
+ * the insertion using this generic function.
+ *
+ * This function should also be useful for request stacking drivers
+ * in some cases below, so export this fuction.
+ * Request stacking drivers like request-based dm may change the queue
+ * limits while requests are in the queue (e.g. dm's table swapping).
+ * Such request stacking drivers should check those requests agaist
+ * the new queue limits again when they dispatch those requests,
+ * although such checkings are also done against the old queue limits
+ * when submitting requests.
