You might have misinterpreted gregkh - in your place I would rather
do a one-patch never-rebased branch (introduction of bdev_inode() in
form that returns bdev->bd_inode), with followup in your branch that
switches it to your variant.  Then conversions of ->bd_inode users,
to be either picked by individual filesystems of staying in your branch.
Any filesystem tree could merge from your never-rebased branch, after
which they could switch their ->bd_inode uses to the new helper, without
introducing any bisection hazards or interdependencies.
After the next -rc1, once all ->bd_inode users are gone from the tree -
remove the field.
