This patch implements block device specific .direct_IO method instead
of going through generic direct_io_worker for block device.

direct_io_worker is fairly complex because it needs to handle O_DIRECT
on file system, where it needs to perform block allocation, hole detection,
extents file on write, and tons of other corner cases. The end result is
that it takes tons of CPU time to submit an I/O.

For block device, the block allocation is much simpler and a tight triple
loop can be written to iterate each iovec and each page within the iovec
in order to construct/prepare bio structure and then subsequently submit
it to the block layer.  This significantly speeds up O_D on block device.

This is v3 of the patch, I have addressed all the comments from Andrew,
Christoph, and Zach.  Too many to list here for v2->v3 changes.  I've
created 34 test cases specifically for corner cases and tested this patch.
(my monkey test code is on http://kernel-perf.sourceforge.net/diotest).
