I don't think it's the correct way to handle this in this case; I think it
could leave dandling requests in the ring.

AFAIK xbdi->xbdi_cont_aux can point to xbdback_co_main_done2, 
xbdback_co_cache_flush2 or xbdback_co_io_loop.

I guess the problematic case would be xbdback_co_io_loop(). But I can't
see how it can be, as the xbdi->xbdi_io = NULL should force a
request split.
