one patch to fix a crash in io submission path, due to memory allocation
errors. In short, the multipage bio work that landed in 5.1 caused
larger bios that in turn require larger temporary memory for checksums.
The patch is a workaround, we're going to rework the allocation so it
does not require the vmalloc fallback.

It took a while to identify that it's caused by patches in 5.1 and not a
patchset that did some changes in error handling in the code. I've
tested it on various memory/cpu combinations, it could hit OOM but does
not crash.

The timestamp of the patch is less than a day due to updates in the
changelog, tests were running meanwhile.

Please pull, thanks.
