block: fix nr_phys_segments miscalculation bug

This fixes the bug reported by Nikanth Karthikesan <knikanth@suse.de>:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/10/2/203

The root cause of the bug is that blk_phys_contig_segment
miscalculates q->max_segment_size.

blk_phys_contig_segment checks:

req->biotail->bi_size + next_req->bio->bi_size > q->max_segment_size

But blk_recalc_rq_segments might expect that req->biotail and the
previous bio in the req are supposed be merged into one
segment. blk_recalc_rq_segments might also expect that next_req->bio
and the next bio in the next_req are supposed be merged into one
segment. In such case, we merge two requests that can't be merged
here. Later, blk_rq_map_sg gives more segments than it should.

We need to keep track of segment size in blk_recalc_rq_segments and
use it to see if two requests can be merged. This patch implements it
in the similar way that we used to do for hw merging (virtual
merging).
