Ming Lei - Nov. 27, 2017, 5:07 a.m.
blk-mq will rerun queue via RESTART or dispatch wake after one request
is completed, so not necessary to wait random time for requeuing, we
should trust blk-mq to do it.

More importantly, we need return BLK_STS_RESOURCE to blk-mq so that
dequeue from I/O scheduler can be stopped, then I/O merge gets improved.
