[BLOCK] noop-iosched: reimplementation of request dispatching

The original implementation directly used dispatch queue.  As new
generic dispatch queue imposes stricter rules over ioscheds and
dispatch queue usage, this direct use becomes somewhat problematic.
This patch reimplements noop-iosched such that it complies to generic
iosched model better.  Request merging with q->last_merge and
rq->queuelist.prev/next work again now.
