md: add proper write-congestion reporting to RAID1 and RAID10.
RAID1 and RAID10 handle write requests by queuing them for handling by a separate thread. This is because when a write-intent-bitmap is active we might need to update the bitmap first, so it is good to queue a lot of writes, then do one big bitmap update for them all. However writeback request devices to appear to be congested after a while so it can make some guesstimate of throughput. The infinite queue defeats that (note that RAID5 has already has a finite queue so it doesn't suffer from this problem). So impose a limit on the number of pending write requests. By default it is 1024 which seems to be generally suitable. Make it configurable via module option just in case someone finds a regression. Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <firstname.lastname@example.org>
