I can't really follow the comment. Please improve the explanation.

So, as a fix for the immediate problem, I guess this might do but this feels
really fragile. How can we be certain that re-entering only happens because
of splitting? What if future core development changes that? It seems to be
solving the problem in the wrong place. Shouldn't we flag the bio indicating
that it's split when we're splitting the bio so that we only limit them for
iops in the first place?

Thanks.
