blk-mq: improve support for shared tags maps
This adds support for active queue tracking, meaning that the blk-mq tagging maintains a count of active users of a tag set. This allows us to maintain a notion of fairness between users, so that we can distribute the tag depth evenly without starving some users while allowing others to try unfair deep queues. If sharing of a tag set is detected, each hardware queue will track the depth of its own queue. And if this exceeds the total depth divided by the number of active queues, the user is actively throttled down. The active queue count is done lazily to avoid bouncing that data between submitter and completer. Each hardware queue gets marked active when it allocates its first tag, and gets marked inactive when 1) the last tag is cleared, and 2) the queue timeout grace period has passed.
