block, cfq: replace current_io_context() with create_io_context()
When called under queue_lock, current_io_context() triggers lockdep warning if it hits allocation path. This is because io_context installation is protected by task_lock which is not IRQ safe, so it triggers irq-unsafe-lock -> irq -> irq-safe-lock -> irq-unsafe-lock deadlock warning. Given the restriction, accessor + creator rolled into one doesn't work too well. Drop current_io_context() and let the users access task->io_context directly inside queue_lock combined with explicit creation using create_io_context(). Future ioc updates will further consolidate ioc access and the create interface will be unexported. While at it, relocate ioc internal interface declarations in blk.h and add section comments before and after. This patch does not introduce functional change.
