scsi/osd: open code blk_make_request
I wish the OSD code could simply use blk_rq_map_* helpers like everyone else, but the complex nature of deciding if we have DATA IN and/or DATA OUT buffers might make this impossible (at least for a mere human like me). But using blk_rq_append_bio at least allows sharing the setup code between request with or without dat a buffers, and given that this is the last user of blk_make_request it allows getting rid of that somewhat awkward interface.

- * blk_make_request - given a bio, allocate a corresponding struct request.

- * blk_make_request is the parallel of generic_make_request for BLOCK_PC

- * the caller. It is passed a &struct bio, which describes the memory info of
- * the I/O transfer.
- *
- * The caller of blk_make_request must make sure that bi_io_vec
- * are set to describe the memory buffers. That bio_data_dir() will return
- * the needed direction of the request. (And all bio's in the passed bio-chain
- * are properly set accordingly)
- *
- * If called under none-sleepable conditions, mapped bio buffers must not
- * need bouncing, by calling the appropriate masked or flagged allocator,
- * suitable for the target device. Otherwise the call to blk_queue_bounce will
- * BUG.
- *
- * WARNING: When allocating/cloning a bio-chain, careful consideration should be
- * given to how you allocate bios. In particular, you cannot use
- * __GFP_DIRECT_RECLAIM for anything but the first bio in the chain. Otherwise
- * you risk waiting for IO completion of a bio that hasn't been submitted yet,
- * thus resulting in a deadlock. Alternatively bios should be allocated using
- * bio_kmalloc() instead of bio_alloc(), as that avoids the mempool deadlock.
- * If possible a big IO should be split into smaller parts when allocation
- * fails. Partial allocation should not be an error, or you risk a live-lock.
