Subject[PATCH] scsi_execute_async() should add to the tail of the queue

scsi_execute_async() has replaced scsi_do_req() a few versions ago,
but it also incurred a change of behavior. I noticed that over-queuing
a SCSI device using that function causes I/Os to be starved from
low-level queuing for no justified reason.

I think it makes much more sense to perserve the original behaviour
of scsi_do_req() and add the request to the tail of the queue.
