[dm-devel] [RFC][PATCH 1/10] I/O context inheritance



Make every bio points the iocontext of the process which originally
generated an I/O request. 
 - Assign the iocontext of the current process to a bio when it is
   newly allocated.
 - Assign the iocontext which the source bio has to a newly allocated
   bio when it is duplicated.
