SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH v5 3/4] nvme: add simple copy support
Matthew,

Maximum Source Range Count (MSRC) is limited by u8. So the maximum
number of source ranges is 256 (0 base value). The number of pages
required to be sent to the device is at most 2. Since we are
allocating the memory using kmalloc_array(), we would get a continuous
physical segment. nvme_map_data() maps the physical segment either by
setting 2 PRP pointers or by SGL. So the copy command sends two pages
to the device for copying more than128 ranges.
