Jens, again, please correct me if I'm wrong, but when sg points at the
entry right before a chain entry this implementation of sg_next will
return a pointer to the chain entry here, which I believe it must not.

here's how I think sg_next should be implemented:

*/
static inline struct scatterlist *sg_next(struct scatterlist *sg)
{
+#ifdef CONFIG_DEBUG_SG
+ BUG_ON(sg->sg_magic != SG_MAGIC);
+#endif
+ if (sg_is_last(sg))
+ return NULL;
+
sg++;
if (unlikely(sg_is_chain(sg)))
sg = sg_chain_ptr(sg);
return sg;
}
