block: get rid of the WRITE_ODIRECT flag

Hi,

The WRITE_ODIRECT flag is only used in one place, and that code path
happens to also call blk_run_address_space.  The introduction of this
flag, then, could result in the device being unplugged twice for every
I/O.

Further, with the batching changes in the next patch, we don't want an
O_DIRECT write to imply a queue unplug.
