There is no special p2p submission process. In the nvme-of case we

look at making a pci_p2pdma_submit_bio() for v6; but if the developer
screws up and still calls the regular submit_bio() things will only be
very subtly broken and that won't be obvious.
I thought about that when reviewing the previous series, and even
started hacking it up. In the end I decided against it for the above
reason - it just adds code, but doesn't actually help with anything
as it is trivial to forget, and not using it will in fact just work.
