Using bio_has_allocated_vec() would mean the bvec would always be
freed if it wasn't a pointer to the inline vecs - my bio splitting
code will use the bvec from the original bio for the split if it's
splitting on a bvec boundary, in which case that's not what we want.

It means "bio owns its bvec".
