At second glance, it does seem insufficient. I had simply copied the
same check that was already used later in __clone_and_map().

What we should do is set ci->sector_count to zero. This will prevent
__split_bio() from performing any further processing on the bio.

Alternatively, we could change __clone_and_map() to return an int, and
return the error to __split_bio() and let it do the cleanup.

Here is a replacement patch based on the first suggestion.
