block: split discard into aligned requests
When a disk has large discard_granularity and small max_discard_sectors, discards are not split with optimal alignment. In the limit case of discard_granularity == max_discard_sectors, no request could be aligned correctly, so in fact you might end up with no discarded logical blocks at all. Another example that helps showing the condition in the patch is with discard_granularity == 64, max_discard_sectors == 128. A request that is submitted for 256 sectors 2..257 will be split in two: 2..129, 130..257. However, only 2 aligned blocks out of 3 are included in the request; 128..191 may be left intact and not discarded. With this patch, the first request will be truncated to ensure good alignment of what's left, and the split will be 2..127, 128..255, 256..257. The patch will also take into account the discard_alignment. At most one extra request will be introduced, because the first request will be reduced by at most granularity-1 sectors, and granularity must be less than max_discard_sectors. Subsequent requests will run on round_down(max_discard_sectors, granularity) sectors, as in the current code.
