The case I found was with the flush bio in dm which is statically
allocated in dm_alloc(). The issue issue is that bio_set_dev() is called
on a bdev that isn't opened. So, the bdev wasn't pointing to a genhd.
I've fixed the issue with the patch below, which will be added in v5.

I think I was being overly cautious with the change and have taken this
out in v5. It seems that this should be a one-off case which should work
with the patch below.

Thanks,
Dennis

Subject: [PATCH 05/14] dm: set flush bio device on demand

The next patch changes the macro bio_set_dev() to associate a bio with a
blkg based on the device set. However, dm creates a static bio to be
used as the basis for cloning empty flush bios on creation. This
association is with a not-opened bdev so bd_disk is %NULL. To easily get
around this, we will set the device on the static bio every time and use
that to copy to the other bios.
