I *think* you might be able to resolve this by changing
__split_and_process_bio() to only ever perform a single split.  No
looping.
i.e. if the bio is too big to handle directly, then split off the front
to a new bio, which you bio_chain to the original.  The original then
has bio_advance() called to stop over the front, then
generic_make_request() so it is queued.
Then the code proceeds to __clone_and_map_data_bio() on the front that
got split off.
When that completes it *doesn't* loop round, but returns into
generic_make_request() which does the looping and makes sure to handle
the lowest-level bio next.

something vaguely like this:


though I haven't tested, and the change (if it works) should probably be
more fully integrated into surrounding code.

You probably don't want to use "fs_bio_set" either - a target-local
pool would be best.
