Subject: [PATCH v4 4/7] block: introduce write-hint to stream-id conversion

This patch moves write-hint-to-stream-id conversion in block-layer.
Earlier this was done by driver (nvme). Current conversion is of the
form "streamid = write-hint - 1", for both user and kernel streams.
Conversion takes stream limit (maintained in request queue) into
account. Write-hints beyond the exposed limit turn to 0.
A 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.
