Ah yes. This patch was tricky because there were two "big" things that
broke on the backport:

1. flush_write_bio() returning a value.
2. The 'data' -> 'epd' rename.

96bf313ecb3 comes from when both of the above conditions overlapped, and
I forgot that I'm basing my second backport change on something that was
already modified.
