This comment sounds more like a commit message (i.e., how were things
before, and how are we changing them). In a couple of years when I read
this code, I probably won't care how it was changed, just how it works.
So I think a comment explaining the concepts of multi-page and
single-page bvecs is very useful, but please move all of the "foo was
changed" and "before mp support" type stuff to the commit message.

The parentheses around (bvec_iter_offset((bvec), (iter))) and
(PAGE_SIZE - (bvec_iter_offset((bvec), (iter)))) are unnecessary
clutter. This looks easier to read to me:

#define bvec_iter_len(bvec, iter) \
min_t(unsigned, mp_bvec_iter_len((bvec), (iter)), \
PAGE_SIZE - bvec_iter_offset((bvec), (iter)))
