How about we keep it? Other than reading from xenstore, it is the only place for
us to know the value from 'ring-page-order'.

This helps calculate the initialized number of elements on all
xen_blkif_ring->pending_free lists. That's how "WARN_ON(i !=
(XEN_BLKIF_REQS_PER_PAGE * blkif->nr_ring_pages));" is used to double check if
there is no leak of elements reclaimed from all xen_blkif_ring->pending_free.

It helps vmcore analysis as well. Given blkif->nr_ring_pages, we would be able
to double check if the number of ring buffer slots are correct.

I could not see any drawback leaving blkif->nr_ring_pagesin the code.
