blk_insert_cloned_request() is called in fast path of dm-rq driver, and
in this function we append request to hctx->dispatch_list of the underlying
queue directly.

1) This way isn't efficient enough because hctx lock is always required

2) With blk_insert_cloned_request(), we bypass underlying queue's IO scheduler
totally, and depend on DM rq driver to do IO schedule completely. But DM
rq driver can't get underlying queue's dispatch feedback at all, and this
information is extreamly useful for IO merge. Without that IO merge can't
be done basically by blk-mq, and causes very bad sequential IO performance.

This patch makes use of blk_mq_try_issue_directly() to dispatch rq to
underlying queue and provides disptch result to dm-rq and blk-mq, and
improves the above situations very much.

With this patch, seqential IO is improved by 3X ~ 5X in my test over
mpath/virtio-scsi.
