SubjectFix noop elevator request merging (in current 2.5 bk)
Hello!

This patch is required otherwise in case if elv_try_last_merge returns nonzero, we do not
initialise *req, and subsequent BUG_ON() in __make_request() will dies because req is NULL
(or is just uninitialised).
This stopped my UBD devices to work, that's how I noticed ;)

Bye,
Oleg
