Doesn't seem like a bad idea.

Make it static and not inline, and the compiler will work it out.

This function name doesn't really imply that it returns you the
nr_segs and count, but that's not a big deal I guess.

You also don't say that nr_segs should be initialised to the amount
you which to write, while count must be initialised to zero.

Why now insert the above test, and put the below statements inside the
branch? OTOH, that makes it less obviously c&p from the others. Maybe
a subsequent patch.

You could assign to *count here, once, and remove the requirement
that the caller initialised it to zero?
