Subject: [PATCH v3 3/7] block: add write-hint to stream-id conversion

Earlier this conversion was done by driver (nvme). Current conversion
is of the form "streamid = write-hint - 1", for both user and kernel
streams (note that existing infra takes care that user-streams do not
bump into kernel ones). Conversion takes stream limit (maintained in
request queue) into account. Write-hints beyond the queue-limit turn
to 0.
New field 'streamid' has been added in request. While 'write-hint' field
continues to exist. It keeps original value passed from upper layer, and
used during merging checks.
