Hello Dave,

Thanks for reviewing this.

Please correct me here, but as I see, bio has only these two limits
which it checks for adding page to bio. It doesn't check for limits
of /sys/block/<dev>/queue/* no? I guess then it could be checked
by block layer below b4 submitting the bio?

113 static inline bool bio_full(struct bio *bio, unsigned len)
114 {
115 if (bio->bi_vcnt >= bio->bi_max_vecs)
116 return true;
117
118 if (bio->bi_iter.bi_size > UINT_MAX - len)
119 return true;
120
121 return false;
122 }


This issue was first observed while running a fio run on a system with
huge memory. But then here is an easy way we figured out to trigger the
issue almost everytime with loop device on my VM setup. I have provided
all the details on this below.
