But now we are at V6 where that isn't the case..

Please don't use chunk. We are iterating over bio_vec structures, while
we have the concept of a chunk size for something else in the block layer,
so this just creates confusion. Nevermind names like
bio_for_each_chunk_segment_all which just double the confusion.

So assuming that bio_for_each_segment is set to stay as-is for now,
here is a proposal for sanity by using the vec name.

OLD: bio_for_each_segment
NEW(page): bio_for_each_segment, to be renamed bio_for_each_page later
NEW(bvec): bio_for_each_bvec

OLD: __bio_for_each_segment
NEW(page): __bio_for_each_segment, to be renamed __bio_for_each_page later
NEW(bvec): (no bvec version needed)

OLD: bio_for_each_segment_all
NEW(page): bio_for_each_page_all (needs updated prototype anyway)
NEW(bvec): (no bvec version needed once bcache is fixed up)
