Patch(?): linux-2.5.1-pre7/drivers/block/DAC960.c compilation fixes

        The following patch makes linux-2.5.1-pre7/drivers/block/DAC960.c
compile. I'm not confident in my understanding of the new "bio" system,
so it would be helpful if someone more knowledgeable about bio could
check it. The changes are:

        1. Delete references the nonexistant MaxSectorsPerRequest field.
           The code already sets RequestQueue->max_sectors.

        2. Replace the undefined bio_size(BufferHead) with BufferHead->bi_size
           (in many places, which is why the diff is big).

        3. Add a missing parameter in one place, changing
                BufferHeader->bi_end_io(BufferHeader, bio_sectors(BufferHeader))

        #3 is the one that I have the most doubts about.

        Anyhow, with this patch and the one that I posted for
drivers/block/xd.c, all of the x86-compatible drivers in
linux-2.5.1-pre7/drivers/block/ seem to compile (as modules, except for
rd.c, which is compiled in).

        Alas, there are about 90 other files outside of drivers/block/
that do not compile. I will probably try to fix some of those next.
