Subject: [PATCH 4/6] block: set .bi_max_vecs as actual allocated vector number

bvec_alloc() may allocate more bio vectors than requested, so set .bi_max_vecs as
actual allocated vector number, instead of the requested number. This way can help
fs build bigger bio because new bio often won't be allocated until the current one
becomes full.
