block: add a error_count field to struct request
This is for the legacy floppy and ataflop drivers that currently abuse ->errors for this purpose. It's stashed away in a union to not grow the struct size, the other fields are either used by modern drivers for different purposes or the I/O scheduler before queing the I/O to drivers.
