How about the following?

There was no API to kmalloc bio and clone and osdblk was using
explicit bio_kmalloc() + __bio_clone().  (my guess here) As this is
inconvenient and there will be more users of it in the future, add
bio_clone_kmalloc() and use it in osdblk.

Can't we use %NULL bioset as an indication to allocate from kmalloc
instead of duping interfaces like this?
