This patch changes the use_cmb_sqes module parameter to read-only. This
parameter allows the driver to place IO submission queues within the
Controller Memory Buffer. Memory allocated for queues aren't
dynamically reallocated between resets. For this reason, allowing the
use_cmb_sqes module parameter to be written may be confusing because it
should not be allowed.
