This series of patches introduces changes to zoned block device handling
code with the intent to simplify the code while optimizing run-time
operation, particularly in the area of zone reporting.

The first patch lifts the device zone check code out of the sd driver
and reimplements these zone checks generically as part of
blk_revalidate_disk_zones(). This avoids zoned block device drivers to
have to implement these checks. The second patch simplifies this
function code for the !zoned case.

The third patch is a small cleanup of zone report processing in
preparation for the fourth patch which removes support for partitions
on zoned block devices. As mentioned in that patch commit message, none
of the known partitioning tools support zoned devices and there are no
known use case in the field of SMR disks being used with partitions.
Dropping partition supports allows to significantly simplify the code
for zone report as zone sector values remapping becomes unnecessary.

Patch 5 to 6 are small cleanups and fixes of the null_blk driver zoned
mode.

The prep patch 7 optimizes zone report buffer allocation for the SCSI
sd driver. Finally, patch 8 introduces a new interface for report zones
handling using a callback function executed per zone reported by the
device. This allows avoiding the need to allocate large arrays of
blk_zone structures for the execution of zone reports. This can
significantly reduce memory usage and pressure on the memory management
system while significantly simplify the code all over.

Overall, this series not only reduces significantly the code size, it
also improves run-time memory usage for zone report execution.

This series applies cleanly on the for-next block tree on top of the
zone management operation series. It may however create a conflict with
Christoph's reqork of disk size revalidation. Please consider this
series for inclusion in the 5.5 kernel.

As always, comments are welcome.

Changes from V1:
* Use __GFP_NORETRY in patch 8 as suggested by Bart.
* Added reviewed-by tags.
