blk-mq: Avoid memory reclaim when remapping queues

While stressing memory and IO at the same time we changed SMT settings,
we were able to consistently trigger deadlocks in the mm system, which
froze the entire machine.

I think that under memory stress conditions, the large allocations
performed by blk_mq_init_rq_map may trigger a reclaim, which stalls
waiting on the block layer remmaping completion, thus deadlocking the
system.  The trace below was collected after the machine stalled,
waiting for the hotplug event completion.

The simplest fix for this is to make allocations in this path
non-reclaimable, with GFP_NOIO.  With this patch, We couldn't hit the
issue anymore.

This should apply on top of Jens's for-next branch cleanly.

Changes since v1:
  - Use GFP_NOIO instead of GFP_NOWAIT.
