Subject: [RFC]cfq-iosched: improve hw_tag detection

If active queue hasn't enough requests and idle window opens, cfq will not
dispatch sufficient requests to hardware. In such situation, current code
will zero hw_tag. But this is because cfq doesn't dispatch enough requests
instead of hardware queue doesn't work. Don't zero hw_tag in such case.
