But that check was only for discard (and discard-like) bios which
had the maic single page that sometimes was unused attached.

For "normal" bios the for_each_segment loop iterates over bi_vcnt,
so it will be ignored anyway.  That being said both I and the lists
got CCed halfway through the thread and I haven't seen the original
report, so I'm not really sure what's going on here anyway.
