LightNVM integrates on both sides of the block layer. The lower layer
implements mapping of logical to physical addressing, while the layer
above can string together multiple LightNVM devices and expose them as a
single block device.

Having multiple devices underneath requires a way to resolve where the
IO came from when submitted through the block layer. Extending bio with
a LightNVM payload solves this problem.

Jens suggests this to implemented using a bio clone. Will do in the next 
refresh.

And I'd spell OpenChannel SSD the way you do in changelogs... for
consistency.
