In that case, don't we need codes to release bios when the mirror is
destroyed?

In addition, not only bios for failed write I/Os but also bios sent to
out-of-sync regions need to be blocked. Bios sent to out-of-sync regions
are processed by generic_make_request() and would return the "success"
to upper layer without dm-raid1 notices it.
