The point is that get_next_sg is fully redundent with
sg_alloc_table() because it is always used in cases when prv is
set. There is zero reason to call sg_alloc_table here in the one case
where prv is not set.

Further this cleans up the spagehtti goto in the middle of the for
loop and avoids allocating an extra chunk if the page list fully fits
in prv.

Given how much smaller it is I think you should look more carefully.
