It looks like dm-cache issues the bio first to the origin device with bi_sector
== N and bi_size == S, but then fails to reset these values when reissuing the
bio to the cache device.  Therefore, the second issue of the bio goes out with
bi_size == 0 and bi_sector == N + (S >> 512), which is incorrect.  I'll send a
patch.
