Re: [PATCH v3] staging: writeboost: Add dm-writeboost

The size is configurable but typically 512KB (that's the default).

Refer to bio payload sounds really dangerous but it may be possible

implementation would be.

Is there some fancy function that is like memcpy but actually "move"
the ownership?
