Right now we, are relying on the fact that when we attempt to actually do
the discard, blkdev_issue_discar() returns -EOPNOTSUPP and the user is
informed that the device does not support discard.

However, in the case where the we do not hit any suitable free extent to
trim in FITRIM code, it will finish without any error. This is very
confusing, because it seems that FITRIM was successful even though the
device does not actually supports discard.

Solution: Check for the discard support before attempt to search for
free extents.
