Are you sure about that?

The prototype of the function is (from dma-mapping-common.h)
static inline int dma_map_sg_attrs(struct device *dev, struct scatterlist *sg,
int nents, enum dma_data_direction dir,
struct dma_attrs *attrs)

which calls map_sg at the struct dma_map_ops (dma-mapping.h)

int (*map_sg)(struct device *dev, struct scatterlist *sg,
int nents, enum dma_data_direction dir,
struct dma_attrs *attrs);

Both return int instead of unsigned int....

At that point both have the same value, but you are right, it is more
clear to use orig_nents

I will resend a version using orig_nents in dmabug_ops attach, but
please take a look the map_sg, I think it can return <0

Best regards!
