[PATCH] md: fix various bugs with aligned reads in RAID5
It is possible for raid5 to be sent a bio that is too big for an underlying device. So if it is a READ that we pass stright down to a device, it will fail and confuse RAID5. So in 'chunk_aligned_read' we check that the bio fits within the parameters for the target device and if it doesn't fit, fall back on reading through the stripe cache and making lots of one-page requests. Note that this is the earliest time we can check against the device because earlier we don't have a lock on the device, so it could change underneath us. Also, the code for handling a retry through the cache when a read fails has not been tested and was badly broken. This patch fixes that code.
