Passing in both offset and the buf_offset seems odd as they are only
used together. So just passing in one byte offset would make more
sense to me. Of course it's not actually an offset anyore, but virtual
address, but we use that offset naming all around xlog_align/xlog_bread
Also I don't think there is a need for the buf_blks argument. The
argument always comes directly from the xlog_get_bp number blocks
argument, so the
can be replaced by simply using a copy of b_buffer_length taken at
the beginning of the function.
