[PATCH 1/3] block: introduce REQ_DIRECT to track direct io bio

Introduce a new flag to identify if a bio has been generated for a
direct IO operation.

This flag is used by the blkio controller to identify if a write IO
request has been issued by the current task and can be limited directly
or if it has been generated from another IO context, as a result of a
buffered IO operation.
