BACKPORT: FROMLIST: scsi: sd: Contribute to randomness when running rotational device

Currently a scsi device won't contribute to kernel randomness when it
uses blk-mq. Since we commonly use scsi on rotational device with
blk-mq, it make sense to keep contributing to kernel randomness in these
cases. This is especially important for virtual machines.

commit b5b6e8c8d3b4 ("scsi: virtio_scsi: fix IO hang caused by automatic
irq vector affinity") made all virtio-scsi device to use blk-mq, which
does not contribute to randomness today. So for a virtual machine only
having virtio-scsi disk (which is common), it will simple stop getting
randomness from its disks in today's implementation.

With this patch, if the above VM has rotational virtio-scsi device, then
it can still benefit from the entropy generated from the disk.
