My question here is why don't we map the complete sg list but only
one entry. What happens to the remaining few sg list entries? Don't we
sent too less data?
Is there anything special you do to get into this kind of situation?
Like 16GiB of memory on 32bit with highmem and a brutal disk/io test
case so?
