This code send individual bio to lower device for each STRIPE_SECTORS (8)
and count them in 16-bit counter 0xffff max (you could find this
constant above in this file)
but counter initialized with 1 to prevent hitting zero during generation
thus maximum is 0xfffe stripes which is 256Mb - 8Kb in bytes
