With this patch the only consumer of the ki_ioprio field is a block
device, which will eventually hit blk_init_request_from_bio where a
validation of the ioprio is hit.

I was hoping to get a simple patch in for the block device case and then
go back and look at other consumers of the kiocb and add ioprio support.
At that point it may be worth it to pull a check into this code.

I'll look more closely at reusing existing fields for the next patch
submission. I am hoping that the feature will be used more often given
that WRR for NVME should be coming soon.
