Subject: [PATCH v4 3/6] block/genhd.c: apply pm_runtime_set_memalloc_noio on block devices

This patch applyes the introduced pm_runtime_set_memalloc_noio on
block device so that PM core will teach mm to not allocate memory with
GFP_IOFS when calling the runtime_resume and runtime_suspend callback
for block devices and its ancestors.
