Where do you free bidi buffer?

Please don't forget that bidi support isn't only for iSER. everyone
needs it.

The current buffer management is not clean so feel free to rewrite it
before iSER if you want.

We need to change task->data allocation since we need aligned buffer
for DIO. The iSCSI driver uses page cache buf IET experience tells
me that we need to support DIO too.
