3.5.7.10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jan Beulich <JBeulich@suse.com>

commit 0e5e098ac22dae38f957e951b70d3cf73beff0f7 upstream.

Commit 7708992 ("xen/blkback: Seperate the bio allocation and the bio
submission") consolidated the pendcnt updates to just a single write,
neglecting the fact that the error path relied on it getting set to 1
up front (such that the decrement in __end_block_io_op() would actually
drop the count to zero, triggering the necessary cleanup actions).

Also remove a misleading and a stale (after said commit) comment.
