[dm-devel] [PATCH v4 03/12] block: Add bio_reset()



Reusing bios is something that's been highly frowned upon in the past,
but driver code keeps doing it anyways. If it's going to happen anyways,
we should provide a generic method.

This'll help with getting rid of bi_destructor - drivers/block/pktcdvd.c
was open coding it, by doing a bio_init() and resetting bi_destructor.
