Subjectcomment typo for generic_make_request in 2.5.1-pre2?

Hi Jens et al,

Just looking at the bio changes in pre2 and I came across the comment for
generic_make_request that says it may change bi_dev and/or bi_rsector. I
think the bi_rsector is supposed to be bi_sector (since the former no
longer exists). Here's a patch if in fact this is just a typo:

It's really no big deal, but I guess even the comments deserve to be
correct. Anyway, this stuff is certainly fun reading!
