We may keep the name of bio_for_each_segment_all(), and just change
the prototype in one single big patch.

For the above two, basically similar with V6, just V6 takes chunk, :-)

This one may cause confusing, since we iterate over pages via
bio_for_each_segment(), but the _all version takes another name
of page, still iterate over pages.

So could we change it in the following way?

OLD: bio_for_each_segment_all
NEW(page): bio_for_each_segment_all (update prototype in one tree-wide &
big patch, to be renamed bio_for_each_page_all)
NEW(bvec): (no bvec version needed once bcache is fixed up)
