block, sx8: kill blk_insert_request()
The only user left for blk_insert_request() is sx8 and it can be trivially switched to use blk_execute_rq_nowait() - special requests aren't included in io stat and sx8 doesn't use block layer tagging. Switch sx8 and kill blk_insert_requeset(). This patch doesn't introduce any functional difference. Only compile tested.

-/**
- * blk_insert_request - insert a special request into a request queue
- * @q: request queue where request should be inserted
- * @rq: request to be inserted
- * @at_head: insert request at head or tail of queue
- * @data: private data
- *
- * Description:
- * Many block devices need to execute commands asynchronously, so they don't
- * block the whole kernel from preemption during request execution. This is
- * accomplished normally by inserting aritficial requests tagged as
- * REQ_TYPE_SPECIAL in to the corresponding request queue, and letting them
- * be scheduled for actual execution by the request queue.
- *
- * We have the option of inserting the head or the tail of the queue.
- * Typically we use the tail for new ioctls and so forth. We use the head
- * of the queue for things like a QUEUE_FULL message from a device, or a
- * host that is unable to accept a particular command.
