Its probably better to simply make your own sil_qc_prep function for this
case rather than touch the core code.

If you are just fiddling with the way the data is split then
LIBATA_MAX_PRD - 1 should be totally safe)

Un-needed

Ok

And since in this approach we are merely splitting the last PRD entry in
some obscure cases we might as well do it by default as it should have no
performance impact of any note done this way.
