Subject[PATCH v2 19/51] block: comments on bio_for_each_segment[_all]
Date
This patch clarifies the fact that even though both
bio_for_each_segment() and bio_for_each_segment_all()
are named as _segment/_segment_all, they still return
one page in each vector, instead of real segment(multipage bvec).

With comming multipage bvec, both the two helpers
are capable of returning real segment(multipage bvec),
but the callers(users) of the two helpers may not be
capable of handling of the multipage bvec or real
segment, so we still keep the interfaces of the helpers
not changed. And new helpers for returning multipage bvec(real segment)
will be introduced later.
