Subject[PATCH v2 00/21] Introduce common scatterlist map function
Changes since v1:

* Rebased onto next-20170424
* Removed the _offset version of these functions per Christoph's
suggestion
* Added an SG_MAP_MUST_NOT_FAIL flag which will BUG_ON in future cases
that can't gracefully fail. This removes a bunch of the noise added
in v1 to a couple of the drivers. (Per David Laight's suggestion)
This flag is only meant for old code
* Split the libiscsi patch into two (per Christoph's suggestion)
the prep patch (patch 2 in this series) has already been
sent separately
* Fixed a locking mistake in the target patch (pointed out by a bot)
* Dropped the nvmet patch and handled it with a different patch
that has been sent separately
* Dropped the chcr patch as they have already removed the code that
needed to be changed

I'm still hoping to only get Patch 1 in the series merged. (Any
volunteers?) I'm willing to chase down the maintainers for the remaining
patches separately after the first patch is in.

The patchset is based on next-20170424 and can be found in the sg_map_v2
branch from this git tree:

Hi Everyone,

As part of my effort to enable P2P DMA transactions with PCI cards,
we've identified the need to be able to safely put IO memory into
scatterlists (and eventually other spots). This probably involves a
conversion from struct page to pfn_t but that migration is a ways off
and those decisions are yet to be made.

As an initial step in that direction, I've started cleaning up some of the
scatterlist code by trying to carve out a better defined layer between it
and it's users. The longer term goal would be to remove sg_page or replace
it with something that can potentially fail.

This patchset is the first step in that effort. I've introduced
a common function to map scatterlist memory and converted all the common
kmap(sg_page()) cases. This removes about 66 sg_page calls (of ~331).

Seeing this is a fairly large cleanup set that touches a wide swath of
the kernel I have limited the people I've sent this to. I'd suggest we look
toward merging the first patch and then I can send the individual subsystem
patches on to their respective maintainers and get them merged
independantly. (This is to avoid the conflicts I created with my last
cleanup set... Sorry) Though, I'm certainly open to other suggestions to get
it merged.
