If you read the surrounding calling code, it appears it's
not performant.

 * @start has to be the _base_ element start, since the
 * linked list entries's offset is from this pointer.
 * Some linked list entries use only the first id, in which case
 * you can pass 0xFF for the second.

And this is still horrible code to read.

I think the below is rather more sensible and it doesn't change
the defconfig with aic94xx object size.

$ size drivers/scsi/aic94xx/aic94xx_sds.o*
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
  10010	    192	      0	  10202	   27da	drivers/scsi/aic94xx/aic94xx_sds.o.new
