This removes the dependency on interrupts to wake up task. Set task
state as TASK_RUNNING, if need_resched() returns true,
while polling for IO completion.
Earlier, polling task used to sleep, relying on interrupt to wake it up.
This made some IO take very long when interrupt-coalescing is enabled in

Changes v1->v2:
        -setting task state once in blk_poll, instead of multiple callers.
