blk-core: use BIO list management functions
Now that the bio list management stuff is generic, convert generic_make_request to use bio lists instead of its own private bio list implementation. Signed-off-by: Akinobu Mita <akinobu.mita@gmail.com> Cc: Christoph Hellwig <hch@infradead.org> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
