block: account iowait time when waiting for completion of IO request
Using wait_for_completion() for waiting for a IO request to be executed results in wrong iowait time accounting. For example, a system having the only task doing write() and fdatasync() on a block device can be reported being idle instead of iowaiting as it should because blkdev_issue_flush() calls wait_for_completion() which in turn calls schedule() that does not increment the iowait proc counter and thus does not turn on iowait time accounting. The patch makes block layer use wait_for_completion_io() instead of wait_for_completion() where appropriate to account iowait time correctly.
