 Thanks for the report -- since I have no means to test the SCSI driver I
was going to ask people for testing to have another confirmation.  I'm not
sure why it got broken (I'll check the details to find out) as the changes
were to revert to the original behaviour, but since struct mmu_sglist got
deprecated, I'm happy to see an update to struct scatterlist.  Since the
change works for both of you, I'm checking it in now.

 Well, it depends on the actual configuration -- I haven't noticed
anything wrong. ;-)
