When one request is dispatched to LLD via dm-rq, if the result is
BLK_STS_*RESOURCE, dm-rq will free the request. However, LLD may allocate
private stuff for this request, so this way will cause memory leak.

Add .cleanup_rq() callback and implement it in SCSI for fixing the issue.
And SCSI is the only driver which allocates private stuff in .queue_rq()

Another use case of this callback is to free the request and re-submit
bios during cpu hotplug when the hctx is dead, see the following link:
