I really hate it that people in the Kernel at some point decided
to name bio_set(s) "pool". This is against Kernel style guide.

You don't overload the namespace and you don't call one-thing
another-thing.

For one "pool"s are already another thing. And for-most the struct
is bio_set a pointer to it should be called bio_set or in short
bs.

The original bio_set code kept the "bio_set" and/or "bs" naming
conventions. But later code. Kept breaking it with "pool". In
code and in comments.

But this Patch is the most blasphemous of all because it's
the first instance of block core code that calls it a "pool".
Up to now bio core kept the bio_set naming.

Please change the name to bi_bs so we can have:
+ bio->bi_bs = bs;

For me above code is an immediate alarm in my mind. Rrrr
false alarm. Please don't let my poor old mind Jump
unnecessarily.

Please, Please , Please Don't forget this time.
bi_bs.
Pools are something a bit different (though related) in the
Kernel.

BTW: I would have loved it if some brave sole would go and
rename struct bio_set => bio_pool. Because when we speak
about them they are pools. (And very much related to memory pools)

And actually a set is something else. This here is definitely
a pool. Because a set is a group of objects that have a relating
trait, a relationship, a uniting factor. Its when we want to act
on a group of objects as one unit.
