Completely agree - I like this change!

:-(

A diff-stat would have been nice... I think I've found all 'my' files though.

If the 'else' branch was taken, we need to generic_make_request(bio).
And 'b' isn't even declared at this level.
So at the end of the 'then' branch, add
        bio = b;
and make the final call
        generic_make_request(bio);
