I realized after thinking about this more and checking more use cases
that it isn't as simple as swapping macro uses because many of the
callers share common bio allocation paths. I think the simplest way
forward is to have writeback and swap do reassociation and split out bio
init code in a future series. So in v5, there is only bio_set_dev().

Thanks,
Dennis
