    block: Make most scsi_req_init() calls implicit

    Instead of explicitly calling scsi_req_init() after blk_get_request(),
    call that function from inside blk_get_request(). Add an
    .initialize_rq_fn() callback function to the block drivers that need
    it. Merge the IDE .init_rq_fn() function into .initialize_rq_fn()
    because it is too small to keep it as a separate function. Keep the
    scsi_req_init() call in ide_prep_sense() because it follows a
    blk_rq_init() call.
