Yeah, I wasn't able to come up with a better description at the time...
how's this:

Change bio_split() to respect the current value of bi_idx

In the current code bio_split() won't be seeing partially completed bios
so this doesn't change any behaviour, but this makes the code a bit
clearer as to what bio_split() actually requires.

The immediate purpose of the patch is removing unnecessary bi_idx
references, but the end goal is to allow partial completed bios to be
submitted, which along with immutable biovecs enables effecient bio
splitting.
