So, if bio_clone_bioset(gfp, nr_iovecs, BIO_KMALLOC_POOL) just does
bio_kmalloc(), the rest just falls out naturally.

We could do this by either just having bio_clone_bioset() call
bio_kmalloc(), or consolidate them both into a single function.

I'm leaning towards the latter, because while looking at it I noticed a
couple subtle behavioural differences.

 * bio_kmalloc(GFP_KERNEL, 0) sets bi_io_vec = bi_inline_vecs,
bio_alloc_bioset sets it to NULL. This is a bug waiting to happen, if it
isn't one already - bi_io_vec != NULL is exactly what bio_has_data()
checks.

 * bio_alloc_bioset() could return a bio with bi_max_vecs greater than
requested if you asked for a bio with fewer than BIO_INLINE_VECS.
Unlikely to ever be a real problem, but subtle enough that I wouldn't
bet too much against it.

 * bio_kmalloc() fails if asked for more than UIO_MAXIOV bvecs (wtf!?),
which is 1024; bio_alloc_bioset fails if asked for more than
BIO_MAX_PAGES (which is 256, and it'd probably take you a bit to see
where/why it fails).

So here's my initial stab at it. Tell me if you think this is too
contorted:
