Subject[GIT PULL] SCSI topic updates for the 5.2+ merge window: sg
From
Date
This topic branch covers a fundamental change in how our sg lists are
allocated to make mq more efficient by reducing the size of the
preallocated sg list. This necessitates a large number of driver
changes because the previous guarantee that if a driver specified
SG_ALL as the size of its scatter list, it would get a non-chained list
and didn't need to bother with scatterlist iterators is now broken and
every driver *must* use scatterlist iterators.

This was broken out as a separate topic because we need to convert all
the drivers before pulling the trigger and unconverted drivers kept
being found, plus the odd bug, necessitating a rebase.

The patch is available here:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jejb/scsi.git scsi-sg

The short changelog is:

Finn Thain (2):
scsi: NCR5380: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist
scsi: aha152x: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist

Ming Lei (19):
scsi: core: don't preallocate small SGL in case of NO_SG_CHAIN
scsi: lib/sg_pool.c: clear 'first_chunk' in case of no preallocation
scsi: core: avoid preallocating big SGL for data
scsi: core: avoid preallocating big SGL for protection information
scsi: lib/sg_pool.c: improve APIs for allocating sg pool
scsi: esp: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist
scsi: wd33c93: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist
scsi: ppa: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist
scsi: pcmcia: nsp_cs: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist
scsi: imm: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist
scsi: s390: zfcp_fc: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist
scsi: staging: unisys: visorhba: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist
scsi: usb: image: microtek: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist
