Subject: [PATCH V10 01/19] block: introduce multi-page page bvec helpers

This patch introduces helpers of 'mp_bvec_iter_*' for multipage
bvec support.

The introduced helpers treate one bvec as real multi-page segment,
which may include more than one pages.

The existed helpers of bvec_iter_* are interfaces for supporting current
bvec iterator which is thought as single-page by drivers, fs, dm and
etc. These introduced helpers will build single-page bvec in flight, so
this way won't break current bio/bvec users, which needn't any change.

+/*
+ * What is multi-page bvecs?
+ *
+ * - bvecs stored in bio->bi_io_vec is always multi-page(mp) style
+ *
+ * - bvec(struct bio_vec) represents one physically contiguous I/O
+ *   buffer, now the buffer may include more than one pages after
+ *   multi-page(mp) bvec is supported, and all these pages represented
+ *   by one bvec is physically contiguous. Before mp support, at most
+ *   one page is included in one bvec, we call it single-page(sp)
+ *   bvec.
+ *
+ * - .bv_page of the bvec represents the 1st page in the mp bvec
+ *
+ * - .bv_offset of the bvec represents offset of the buffer in the bvec
+ *
+ * The effect on the current drivers/filesystem/dm/bcache/...:
+ *
+ * - almost everyone supposes that one bvec only includes one single
+ *   page, so we keep the sp interface not changed, for example,
+ *   bio_for_each_segment() still returns bvec with single page
+ *
+ * - bio_for_each_segment*() will be changed to return single-page
+ *   bvec too
+ *
+ * - during iterating, iterator variable(struct bvec_iter) is always
+ *   updated in multipage bvec style and that means bvec_iter_advance()
+ *   is kept not changed
+ *
+ * - returned(copied) single-page bvec is built in flight by bvec
+ *   helpers from the stored multipage bvec
+ *
+ * - In case that some components(such as iov_iter) need to support
+ *   multi-page bvec, we introduce new helpers(mp_bvec_iter_*) for
+ *   them.
