I'd hate having to special case them even more.  Especially as the
discard splitting is nasty and we really don't want to send giant
discards by default anyway (see Jens' patches to limit discard size
by default).

So I'd recommend to keep everything as-is, just make sure we don't
overflow bi_size.
