Series block: fix I/O errors in BLKRRPART | expand

This patch fixes I/O errors during BLKRRPART ioctl() behavior right
after format operation that changed logical block size of the block
device with a same file descriptor opened.

This issue can be easily reproduced with a single format command in case
of NVMe (logical block size 512B to 4096B).

	nvme format /dev/nvme0n1 --lbaf=1 --force

This is because the application, nvme-cli format subcommand issues an
admin command followed by BLKRRPART ioctl to re-read partition
information without closing the file descriptor.  If file descriptor
stays opened, __blkdev_get() will not be invoked at all even logical
block size has been changed.

It will cause I/O errors with invalid Read operations during the
BLKRRPART ioctl due to i_blkbits mismatch. The invalid operations in
BLKRRPART happens with under-flowed Number of LBA(NLB) values
0xffff(65535) because i_blkbits is still set to 9 even the logical block
size has been updated to 4096.  The BLKRRPART will lead buffer_head to
hold 512B data which is less than the logical lock size of the block

The root cause, which is because i_blkbits of inode of the block device
is not updated, can be solved easily by re-opening file descriptor
again from application.  But, that's just for application's business
and kernel should reject invalid Read operations during the BLKRRPART

This patch rejects I/O from the path of add_partitions() to avoid
issuing invalid Read operations to device.  It sets a flag to
request_queue in blk_queue_logical_block_size to minimize caller-side
