Ok, I'll stick a comment in there:

	if (atomic_dec_and_test(&bio->bi_cnt)) {
		bio_disassociate_task(bio);
		bio->bi_next = NULL;

		/*
		 * This if statement is temporary - bi_pool is replacing
		 * bi_destructor, but bi_destructor will be taken out in another
		 * patch.
		 */
		if (bio->bi_pool)
			bio_free(bio, bio->bi_pool);
		else
			bio->bi_destructor(bio);
	}
