[BLOCK] Kill blk_attempt_remerge()
It's a broken interface, it's done way too late. And apparently it triggers slab problems in recent kernels as well (most likely after the generic dispatch code was merged). So kill it, ide-cd is the only user of it. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de>

- * blk_attempt_remerge - attempt to remerge active head with next request
- * @q: The &request_queue_t belonging to the device
- * @rq: The head request (usually)
- *
- * Description:
- * For head-active devices, the queue can easily be unplugged so quickly
- * that proper merging is not done on the front request. This may hurt
- * performance greatly for some devices. The block layer cannot safely
- * do merging on that first request for these queues, but the driver can
- * call this function and make it happen any way. Only the driver knows
- * when it is safe to do so.
