[dm-devel] [PATCH v6 13/13] block: Only clone bio vecs that are in use



bcache creates large bios internally, and then splits them according to
the device requirements before it sends them down. If a lower level
device tries to clone the bio, and the original bio had more than
BIO_MAX_PAGES, the clone will fail unecessarily.

We can fix this by only cloning the bio vecs that are actually in use.
