[PATCH 04/11] block: Improvements to bounce-buffer handling




Since commit 23688bf4f830 ("block: ensure to split after potentially
bouncing a bio") blk_queue_bounce() is called *before*
blk_queue_split().
This means that:
 1/ the comments blk_queue_split() about bounce buffers are
    irrelevant, and
 2/ a very large bio (more than BIO_MAX_PAGES) will no longer be
    split before it arrives at blk_queue_bounce(), leading to the
    possibility that bio_clone_bioset() will fail and a NULL
    will be dereferenced.

Separately, blk_queue_bounce() shouldn't use fs_bio_set as the bio
being copied could be from the same set, and this could lead to a
deadlock.

So:
 - allocate 2 private biosets for blk_queue_bounce, one for
   splitting enormous bios and one for cloning bios.
 - add code to split a bio that exceeds BIO_MAX_PAGES.
 - Fix up the comments in blk_queue_split()
