SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 03/13] mpt3sas: SGL to PRP Translation for I/Os to NVMe devices

This all seems very convoluted. You should rely on the block layer
infrastructure instead of doing all this slicing and dicing by hand.

If the attached device is an NVMe drive, call blk_queue_virt_boundary()
and you will only receive requests that are suitable for a device with
PRP-style scatterlist constraints.
