fs/direct-io.c: don't try to allocate more than BIO_MAX_PAGES in a bio
When using devices that support max_segments > BIO_MAX_PAGES (256), direct IO tries to allocate a bio with more pages than allowed, which leads to an oops in dio_bio_alloc(). Clamp the request to the supported maximum, and change dio_bio_alloc() to reflect that bio_alloc() will always return a bio when called with __GFP_WAIT and a valid number of vectors.
