OK.

It is just merge or not, both can be handled well now.

Yeah, I thought of this way too, but it may cause tons of bio split for
no-clustering, and there are quite a few scsi devices which require
to disable clustering.

[linux]$ git grep -n DISABLE_CLUSTERING ./drivers/scsi/ | wc -l
28

Or we may introduce bio_split_to_single_page_bvec() to allocate &
convert to single-page bvec table for non-clustering, will try this
approach in next version.

Yeah, it has been in my post-multi-page todo list already, :-)
