    Deadline iosched: Reset batch for ordered requests
    
    The deadline I/O scheduler does not reset the batch count when starting
    a new batch at a higher-sectored request.  This means the second and
    subsequent batch in the same data direction will never exceed a single
    request in size whenever higher-sectored requests are pending.
    
    This patch gives new batches in the same data direction as old ones
    their full quota of requests by resetting the batch count.
