I think we must forward in loop, because each cmd could come from different
cgroup, so we must explicitly forward for each cmd.

The main reason not to do the forward in aio is complexity. We at least have 3
different implementations for dio:
- __blockdev_direct_IO for ext4 and btrfs
- iomap dio for xfs
- blockdev dio implementation

Forwarding in dio means hooking the cgroup association for each bio dispatched
in the implementations, which is a little messy. I'd like to avoid this if
there is no strong reason to do it.

Thanks,
Shaohua
