Agreed,I added that patch for understanding purpose only. Today I referred other crypto driver for DMA related code. Most of them are using dma_map_sg except QAT. In QAT, They are first updating the Page address using offset then mapping each page in for loop with dma_map_single(0. I will try the same in chelsio driver will see the behavior.
