For the sake of making this clear to other kernel hackers (I got bitten by
it too) - starting with 2.4.13 you must zero out the fields of struct
scatterlist that you are not using. i.e. it is no longer sufficient to
simply set sg.address and sg.length, because junk might still be present in
the new sg.page field, and pci_map_*() will BUG() if both sg.address and
sg.page are non-zero.

Dan
