Default Block cleanups (for bcache)

From: Kent Overstreet <koverstreet@google.com>

Couple related things in this patch series. This is mostly stuff I did for
bcache, polished/expanded up a bit:

* Bio pool freeing. This moves freeing of bios allocated from bio pools into
generic code.

* Kill bi_destructor. That was Tejun's idea, but it turned out to be easier
than I expected.

* Improved bio splitting. This was originally part of bcache, but I pulled it
out and replaced the existing bio splitting code with it.

* Closures - this is from bcache. I didn't really need to use it for the next
patch, but IMO it makes the code a bit more elegant.

* Make generic_make_request() handle arbitrary size bios. I think this is
going to enable a lot of cleanups in the future.

The idea here isn't for generic_make_request() to be doing the splitting in
practice long term, it's more just an intermediate stage. If this goes in, I
think a lot of driver code - certainly a lot of virtual block drivers -
could easily be made to handle arbitrary sized bios, and splitting will only
happen when a bio is being redirected to two different devices or something
like that. But this should enable a lot of cleanups without having to change
every block driver first.

block: Generalized bio pool freeing
dm: kill dm_rq_bio_destructor
block: Add bio_clone_bioset()
block: Add bio_clone_kmalloc()
block: Only clone bio vecs that are in use
block: Add bio_reset()
pktcdvd: Switch to bio_kmalloc()
block: Kill bi_destructor
block: Add an explicit bio flag for bios that own their bvec
block: Rework bio splitting
Closures
Make generic_make_request handle arbitrarily large bios
Gut bio_add_page()

Default Block cleanups (for bcache)

This is version 2 of this patch series - nothing major, documented a few things
and incorporated various review feedback. Please let me know if there's
anything I missed.

bcache, polished/expanded up a bit:
