Default block: Introduce blk_set_stacking_limits function

Stacking driver queue limits are typically bounded exclusively by the
capabilities of the low level devices, not by the stacking driver
itself.

Stacking drivers are typically permissive. A feature is supported unless
an incompatible bottom device causes it to be disabled. Low-level
drivers on the other hand are restrictive and want features disabled by
default. Low-level drivers explicitly enable features as part of their
device discovery process.

This patch introduces blk_set_stacking_limits() which has more liberal
metrics than the default queue limits function. This allows us to
inherit topology parameters from bottom devices without manually
tweaking the default limits in each driver prior to calling the stacking
function.

Since there is now a clear distinction between stacking and low-level
devices, blk_set_default_limits() has been modified to carry the more
conservative values that we used to manually set in
blk_queue_make_request().
