Tejun Heo - Aug. 19, 2010, 3:14 p.m.
Remove now unused REQ_HARDBARRIER support.  virtio_blk already
supports REQ_FLUSH and the usefulness of REQ_FUA for virtio_blk is
questionable at this point, so there's nothing else to do to support
new REQ_FLUSH/FUA interface.

REQ_FUA support dropped as suggested by Christoph.
