Please divert some of your anger towards your manufacturer of dodgy
hardware. Any sane hardware with an IOMMU handles this just fine.
eg on ppc64 running a disk test:

sg size in out
1 3 47569
2 0 2591
3 0 1123
4 0 447
5 0 429
...
62 5095 0
64 47061 0

The IOMMU is taking 62-64 entry SG lists and producing 1-5 entry lists.
