block: kill swap_io_context()
Jens Axboe [Fri, 1 Feb 2008 10:34:49 +0000 (11:34 +0100)]
It blindly copies everything in the io_context, including the lock.
That doesn't work so well for either lock ordering or lockdep.

There seems zero point in swapping io contexts on a request to request
merge, so the best point of action is to just remove it.
