Writes were never merged by the device request queue anyway.

Merging the FAT table writes happens at a higher level: in the FAT filesystem.  That's not
affected by these changes.  The FAT filesystem will submit a series of DISCARD requests for
each deleted file, interspersed with a smaller number of FAT write requests which merge
multiple changes.
