I'll re add the function comment if you want, just for a single line
wrapper I don't know if it's worth the cost - comments get out of date,
and they're more stuff to wade through.

bio_kmalloc() fails if nr_iovecs > 1024, bio_alloc_bioset() fails if
nr_iovecs > 256

and bio_alloc_bioset() is mempool backed, bio_kmalloc() is not.

AFAICT that's it.
