block: implement bio helper to add iter bvec pages to bio
For an ITER_BVEC, we can just iterate the iov and add the pages to the bio directly. For now, we grab a reference to those pages, and release them normally on IO completion. This isn't really needed for the normal case of O_DIRECT from/to a file, but some of the more esoteric use cases (like splice(2)) will unconditionally put the pipe buffer pages when the buffers are released. Until we can manage that case properly, ITER_BVEC pages are treated like normal pages in terms of reference counting.
