Btrfs: add code to scrub to copy read data to another disk

The device replace procedure makes use of the scrub code. The scrub
code is the most efficient code to read the allocated data of a disk,
i.e. it reads sequentially in order to avoid disk head movements, it
skips unallocated blocks, it uses read ahead mechanisms, and it
contains all the code to detect and repair defects.
This commit adds code to scrub to allow the scrub code to copy read
data to another disk.
One goal is to be able to perform as fast as possible. Therefore the
write requests are collected until huge bios are built, and the
write process is decoupled from the read process with some kind of
flow control, of course, in order to limit the allocated memory.
The best performance on spinning disks could by reached when the
head movements are avoided as much as possible. Therefore a single
worker is used to interface the read process with the write process.
The regular scrub operation works as fast as before, it is not
negatively influenced and actually it is more or less unchanged.
