How big are your log chunks? Presumably they're relatively small (eg,
256k). In which case you can optimise for the common case where you
have enough bios to hand to build your log chunk by just referencing
the bio payloads, rather than copying. It's only the last bit of io
in a burst that should be using this copying slow path.
