OK.

OK.

The parent bio is multi-page bvec, we can't submit it for non-cluster.

OK.

That is exactly what bounce code does. The problem for both bounce
and non-cluster is same actually because the bvec table itself has
to be changed.

bio_segments(*bio_orig) may be > 256, so bio_alloc_bioset() may fail.
