We've split blkdev_issue_discard into __blkdev_issue_discard and a small
wrapper around in for 4.7, so this will need a bit of an update.

As part of that I also removed the strange EOPNOTSUPP ignore, but Mike
reverted it just because it changed something in the dm testsuite.

I still believe we should never ignore it in this helper, and only
do so in callers that believe it's the right thing.
