Subject[PATCH] Correctly release and allocate a new request on TUR retries


Commands needing to be retried (TUR in this case) would result in a block
I/O request being re-used, without being re-initialized properly. This
patch ensures that the requests are correctly re-initialized via
standard allocation means.

Prior to this patch, boots were failing consistently as in:
http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/12/5/161

With this patch in place, the system is booting reliably.
