block: don't allocate a payload for discard request
Allocating a fixed payload for discard requests always was a horrible hack, and it's not coming to byte us when adding support for discard in DM/MD. So change the code to leave the allocation of a payload to the lowlevel driver. Unfortunately that means we'll need another hack, which allows us to update the various block layer length fields indicating that we have a payload. Instead of hiding this in sd.c, which we already partially do for UNMAP support add a documented helper in the core block layer for it.
