I've switched it to bio_set_dev_without_blkg() and added the comment
below and added a comment in the use cases. Let me know if the wording
is fine below.

+/*
+ * Bio device setters. A blkg represents the relationship between a blkcg
+ * and a request_queue. When the device is set for a bio, it becomes possible
+ * to do blkg association. Importantly, a blkg also holds a pointer back to
+ * the request_queue. In general, bio_set_dev() should be used to keep
+ * bio->bi_disk->queue and bio->bi_blkg->q consistent. If blkg association
+ * will be done explicitly or is a bio based device, use
+ * bio_set_dev_without_blkg().
+ */

Thanks,
Dennis
