Hi Eric,

Thanks for yet another round of cleanup

I'll look into these, but I'd like to clarify one thing first.

IIUC, you are trying to deal with the case where a single scatterlist
element describes a range that strides two pages, and I wonder if that
is a valid use of scatterlists in the first place.

Herbert?
