Update: when I revert Herbert's patch in addition to applying your
patch, the iSCSI performance goes back up to 115 MB/s again in both
directions. So it looks like turning off SG for TX didn't itself cause
the performance drop, but rather that the performance drop is just
another manifestation of whatever bug is causing the data corruption.

I do not regularly use wireshark or look at network packet dumps, so I
am not really sure what to look for. Given the above information, do
you still believe that there is value in examining the packet dump?
