cfq-iosched: fix next_rq computation

Cfq has a bug in computation of next_rq, that affects transition
between multiple sequential request streams in a single queue
(e.g.: two sequential buffered writers of the same priority),
causing the alternation between the two streams for a transient period.

The fix makes sure that the next_rq is computed from the last
dispatched request, and not affected by merging.
