Adding that.

The two aren't mutually exclusive - but using BIO_KMALLOC_POOL instead
of separate interfaces is an excellent idea, I'll do that.

That means bio_clone_kmalloc will just become:

static inline struct bio *bio_clone_kmalloc(struct bio *bio,
					    gfp_t gfp_mask)
{
	return bio_clone_bioset(bio, gfp_mask, BIO_KMALLOC_POOL)
}

(or maybe NULL there, I think using NULL for the interface makes sense,
I just don't want to use it for bi_pool).

Do you still want the /** for a one line wrapper like that?
