This is a regression introduced by the "migrate from ll_rw_block usage
to BIO" patch.

Bio_alloc() is limited to 256 pages (1 Mbyte).   This can cause a
failure when reading 1 Mbyte block filesystems.  The problem is
a datablock can be fully (or almost uncompressed), requiring 256
pages, but, because blocks are not aligned to page boundaries, it
may require 257 pages to read.

Bio_kmalloc() can handle 1024 pages, and so use this for the
edge condition.
