Subject: [RFC PATCH] raid1: reset 'bi_next' before reuse the bio


During the testing we found the sync read bio can go through
path:

  md_do_sync()
    sync_request()
      generic_make_request()
        blk_queue_bio()
          blk_attempt_plug_merge()
            bio->bi_next CHAINED HERE

  ...

  raid1d()
    sync_request_write()
      fix_sync_read_error()
        if FailFast && Faulty
          bio->bi_end_io = end_sync_write
      generic_make_request()
        BUG_ON(bio->bi_next)

This need to meet the conditions:
  * bio once merged
  * read disk have FailFast enabled
  * read disk is Faulty

And since the block layer won't reset the 'bi_next' after bio
is done inside request, we hit the BUG like that.

This patch simply reset the bi_next before we reuse it.
