blk-mq: Don't reserve a tag for flush request
Reserving a tag (request) for flush to avoid dead lock is a overkill. A tag is valuable resource. We can track the number of flush requests and disallow having too many pending flush requests allocated. With this patch, blk_mq_alloc_request_pinned() could do a busy nop (but not a dead loop) if too many pending requests are allocated and new flush request is allocated. But this should not be a problem, too many pending flush requests are very rare case. I verified this can fix the deadlock caused by too many pending flush requests.
