Subject[patch 6/7] blk: add plug for blkdev_issue_discard
In raid 0 case, a big discard request is divided into several small requests
in chunk_size unit. Such requests can be merged in low layer if we have
correct plug added. This should improve the performance a little bit.

raid 10 case doesn't matter, as we dispatch request in a separate thread
and there is plug there.
