Isn't this also necessary to record errors on partial completions?

Other than that, I definitely like this.  It would be nice to note
that the custom partial bio advancing in blk_update_request() is
replaced with multiple calls to req_bio_endio().  I don't think it has
any meaningful performance implications.  It's just nice to future
readers of the commit.

Also, it would be really nice if you can verify this actually works
with partial blk_update_request().  sector update bug in the previous
patch scares me a bit.  Implementing some debug hacks in the
completion path might be the easiest way to verify.  A subtle bug here
could be pretty painful.

Thanks.
