Subject[PATCH v2 RESENT] blk: optimization for classic polling
Date
This removes the dependency on interrupts to wake up task. Set task
state as TASK_RUNNING, if need_resched() returns true,
while polling for IO completion.
Earlier, polling task used to sleep, relying on interrupt to wake it up.
This made some IO take very long when interrupt-coalescing is enabled in
NVMe.

Reference:
http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-nvme/2018-February/015435.html

Changes since v1:
-setting task state once in blk_poll, instead of multiple
callers.
