The whole point of this series it to make it explicit.  That will have to
be carried over into a multipage bvec world.  That means the current
__bio_try_merge_page will have to remain as-is in that new world order,
but we'd also add a new __bio_try_merge_segment which merges beyond th
e page.  For the iomap and xfs code we'd first call __bio_try_merge_page,
if that fails increment the read/write count, and only after that
call __bio_try_merge_segment.
