How about something like following?

__bio_for_each_segment() iterates bvecs from the specified index
instead of bio->bv_idx. Currently, the only usage is to walk all the
bvecs after the bio has been advanced by specifying 0 index.

To help immutable bvec implementation, replace it with
bio_for_each_segment_all() which also better documents the intent of
code that's using it. Note that bio_for_each_segment_all() should
only be used by the code which owns the bio.
