Hmm. From Jens tree:

drivers/lightnvm/pblk-read.c: int_bio = bio_clone_bioset(bio, GFP_KERNEL, fs_bio_set);
drivers/md/raid1.c: mbio = bio_clone_bioset_partial(bio, GFP_NOIO,
drivers/md/raid1.c: mbio = bio_clone_bioset_partial(bio, GFP_NOIO,

I did not see your series touching either of those. They probably
don't matter for the code removed as the bios are controlled by the
drivers, but the changelog still seems odd.
