Looks it is fine, then maybe it is related with BIOVEC_PHYS_MERGEABLE(),
BIOVEC_SEG_BOUNDARY() or sort of thing, because dma_addr_t and
phys_addr_t turn to 64-bit with PAE, but 'unsigned long' and 'void *'
is still 32bit.

It was confirmed that there isn't the issue if PAE is disabled.

Dumping both sata/ahci hw sg table and bio's bvec might be helpful.

Yes, that is why reverting 578270bfb(block: fix segment split) can make the
issue disappear, because 5014c311ba "block: fix bogus compiler
warnings in blk-merge.c" basically disables sg-merge and prevents the
issue from being
