Thanks for your kindly reply. I think it doesn't work for the current logic
since nblocks also indicates the block(page) distance of end of map_blocks
bound (see my explanation in the email [1])...

[1] https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/cb392476-a00e-09ce-fa6b-9e088242ecc6@huawei.com/

and
 nblocks = min(distance to the end of mapping, nr of remaining pages to read, BIO_MAX_PAGES)
 bio->bi_max_vecs = nblocks (which is the worst case if pages cannot be merged)
 

Currently I think a patch is needed to fix for linux-5.1, iomap is in consideration
as well months ago [2]. However it needs to be done later and with some careful tests.

[2] https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/c742194d-4207-e7b9-b679-c1f207961f17@huawei.com/

So I think let's fix it as it is in linux-5.1, and I will turn into iomap in my free time.

Thanks,
Gao Xiang
