Good catch! The blk-mq parts aren't affected by this, the screw up only
happened in the old IO path. I've added this with the appropriate
tested-by from Artem, and CC stable and listed the commit that broke it:

commit 54efd50bfd873e2dbf784e0b21a8027ba4299a3e
Author: Kent Overstreet <kent.overstreet@gmail.com>
Date: Thu Apr 23 22:37:18 2015 -0700

block: make generic_make_request handle arbitrarily sized bios

Thanks to all involved in nailing this down, it'll go out shortly.
