Thanks for bisecting, the patch you are referring to is with the similar
fix for bio bounce ?

I've asked Christoph about how we can go about this issue, based on his
reply I can send a patch.

I think having kmalloc is what we want to avoid in the fast path, with
that in
mind in my opinion we need to fix the call sites with kmalloc call if number
is small, which I think it is. Let's wait.

Meanwhile it will be great if you can share the result of the thorough
testing.

it may not work since nr_iovecs needs to be passed
