The flag was introduced for local case: if we modify local
block-device directly, bypassing ext4, we cannot rely on
fsync() and must flush the device explicitly. It is not the
case for pio_nfs, so it's not necessary to set

The patch is important because pio_nfs doesn't provide
issue_flush method.

Changed in v2:
 - rebase: after 34c7bf1755 moved set_bit and nullifying submit into
   ploop_entry_nullify_req(), the patch to be applied to this new
