The 'last' field of 'struct blk_mq_queue_data' does not indicate the
last request in the hardware queue, since we want to collect more
requests from block layer as much as possible to be packed later.

And from blk_mq_do_dispatch_sched()--->blk_mq_dispatch_rq_list()--->
queue_rq(), I always get 'bd.last = true', which is not useful to
combine requests for MMC packed queue. Maybe I missed anything?

Thanks for your comments.
