block: Implement support for zoned block devices
Implement zoned block device zone information reporting and reset. Zone information are reported as struct blk_zone. This implementation does not differentiate between host-aware and host-managed device models and is valid for both. Two functions are provided: blkdev_report_zones for discovering the zone configuration of a zoned block device, and blkdev_reset_zones for resetting the write pointer of sequential zones. The helper function blk_queue_zone_size and bdev_zone_size are also provided for, as the name suggest, obtaining the zone size (in 512B sectors) of the zones of the device.
