I think it would be better to introduce bio_clone*() functions in a
separate patch and convert the users in a different one.

So, bio_clone() loses its function comment.  Also, does it even make
sense to call bio_clone() from fs_bio_set?  Let's say it's so, then
what's the difference from using _kmalloc variant?

Thanks.
