Question about end_clone_bio()

There are codes in end_clone_bio():

static void end_clone_bio(struct bio *clone, int error)
* bios are processed from the head of the list.
* So the completing bio should always be rq->bio.
* If it's not, something wrong is happening.
if (tio->orig->bio != bio)
DMERR("bio completion is going in the middle of the request");

My question is: why the completing bio should always be rq->bio? If
the driver of a block device dispatchs all the bios belong to a
how should it make sure the first completing bio is the first bio in
bio list of request ?

Best Regard
