Yes, blktrace will see both of completions for rq and bio's it contains 
from now on, and I thought it's your intention? For the bounced bio's, 
it'll see one more completion per bio.

The users of older blktrace might get confused by this, thus changing 
the tool is inevitable regardless of the bounced bio's.
