I hadn't looked at this closely enough before. But, when I did I came up
with an option e: get rid of the dm_rq_clone_bio_info allocation by
using bio_set's front_pad.

    dm: Use bioset's front_pad for dm_rq_clone_bio_info
    
    Previously, dm_rq_clone_bio_info needed to be freed by the bio's
    destructor to avoid a memory leak in the blk_rq_prep_clone() error path.
    This gets rid of a memory allocation and means we can kill
    dm_rq_bio_destructor.
