[PATCH 4.18 082/197] block: dont warn for flush on read-only device




4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jens Axboe <axboe@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit b089cfd95d32638335c551651a8e00fd2c4edb0b ]

Don't warn for a flush issued to a read-only device. It's not strictly
a writable command, as it doesn't change any on-media data by itself.
