block: don't take lock on changing ra_pages
There's no need to take queue_lock or kernel_lock when modifying bdi->ra_pages. So remove them. Also remove out of date comment for queue_max_sectors_store(). Signed-off-by: Wu Fengguang <wfg@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
