    So, it's really interesting, it worked really for me (oops without patch) and
    no oops with it. My hardware is a custom board with an at91rm9200.

    I had a look the the kunmap_atomic function, and I _really_ don't understand
    how this patch can do something :-/

    And last but not least, my patch is completly wrong...
    void *kmap_atomic(...);
    unsigned int *buffer = kmap_atomic(...) + sg->offset; // addition in u8*
    kunmap_atomic(buffer - sg->offset); // <- sub in u32*

    -> please forget my patch
