Add and improve documentation for function regarding creating and sending
IO requests to the hardware.

Hello,

I did my best to describe all variations of *_run_hw_queue, although
their names and functionally are really similar. I would be happy to get
feedback about those functions descriptions.

Those comments were tested with:

./scripts/kernel-doc -none block/blk-mq.c

Which did not returned any warning or error.

Thanks,
	André

Changes since v2:
- Update blk_mq_run_hw_queue() from bool to void type

Changes since v1:
- Add documentation for blk_mq_start_request()
