Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] usbip: Implement SG support
There are bugs on vhci with usb 3.0 storage device. Originally, vhci
doesn't supported SG, so USB storage driver on vhci breaks SG list
into multiple URBs and it causes error that a transfer got terminated
too early because the transfer length for one of the URBs was not
divisible by the maxpacket size.

To support SG, vhci doesn't map and unmap URB for DMA to use native
SG list (urb->num_sgs). In DMA mapping function of vhci, it sets
URB_DMA_MAP_SG flag in urb->transfer_flags if URB has SG list and
this flag will tell the stub driver to use SG list.

In this patch, vhci basically support SG and it sends each SG list
entry to the stub driver. Then, the stub driver sees the total length
of the buffer and allocates SG table and pages according to the total
buffer length calling sgl_alloc(). After the stub driver receives
completed URB, it again sends each SG list entry to vhci.

If HCD of the server doesn't support SG, the stub driver breaks a
single SG reqeust into several URBs and submit them to the server's
HCD. When all the split URBs are completed, the stub driver
reassembles the URBs into a single return command and sends it to

Alan fixed vhci bug with the USB 3.0 storage device by modifying
USB storage driver.
("usb-storage: Set virt_boundary_mask to avoid SG overflows")
But the fundamental solution of it is to add SG support to vhci.

This patch works well with the USB 3.0 storage devices without Alan's
patch, and we can revert Alan's patch if it causes some troubles.
