With issue/complete and timeout paths now using the generation number
and state based synchronization, blk_abort_request() is the only one
which depends on REQ_ATOM_COMPLETE for arbitrating completion.

There's no reason for blk_abort_request() to be a completely separate
path.  This patch makes blk_abort_request() piggyback on the timeout
path instead of trying to terminate the request directly.

This removes the last dependency on REQ_ATOM_COMPLETE in blk-mq.

Note that this makes blk_abort_request() asynchronous - it initiates
abortion but the actual termination will happen after a short while,
even when the caller owns the request.  AFAICS, SCSI and ATA should be
fine with that and I think mtip32xx and dasd should be safe but not
completely sure.  It'd be great if people who know the drivers take a

v2: - Add comment explaining the lack of synchronization around
      ->deadline update as requested by Bart.
