That Arnd Bergmann just posted ? I'm copying it below in case you
haven't seen it.

[PATCH] libata: fix oops with
sparsemem

libata incorrectly passes NULL arguments to sg_set_buf, which
crashes on powerpc64 when looking for the corresponding mem_section.

This introduces a new ata_exec_nodma() wrapper that takes no buffer
arguments and does not call sg_set_buf either. In order to make it
easier to detect this sort of problem, it also adds a WARN_ON(!buf)
to sg_set_buf() so we get a log message even platforms without
sparsemem.
