Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH v2 09/14] block: Add an explicit bio flag for bios that own their bvec

How do you insure that the original bio which owns the
bvec is not freed before the split-out bio.

Perhaps calling code needs to make sure by taking an extra
ref on the original bio, or something. If so a big fat comment
at bio_split is do.

And I understand you did not like my suggestion of negating
the meaning of the flag, so the default is zero?
Please say why?

Thanks
