[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm: dm-cache fails to write the cache device in writethrough mode



The new writethrough strategy for dm-cache issues a bio to the origin device,
remaps the bio to the cache device, and issues the bio to the cache device.
However, the block layer modifies bi_sector and bi_size, so we need to preserve
these or else nothing gets written to the cache (bi_size == 0).  This fixes the
problem where someone writes a block through the cache, but a subsequent reread
(from the cache) returns old contents.
