block: make /sys/block/<dev>/queue/discard_max_bytes writeable

Lots of devices support huge discard sizes these days. Depending
on how the device handles them internally, huge discards can
introduce massive latencies (hundreds of msec) on the device side.

We have a sysfs file, discard_max_bytes, that advertises the max
hardware supported discard size. Make this writeable, and split
the settings into a soft and hard limit. This can be set from
'discard_granularity' and up to the hardware limit.

Add a new sysfs file, 'discard_max_hw_bytes', that shows the hw
set limit.

----------------------
While discard_max_hw_bytes is the hardware limit for the device, this
setting is the software limit. Some devices exhibit large latencies when
large discards are issued, setting this value lower will make Linux issue
smaller discards and potentially help reduce latencies induced by large
discard operations.
