Hi Christoph I've quickly reviewed your code and have a few questions

So two things here:
- hdr->cmd_len is char so can be MAX of 255. I understand that 4 bytes alignment is a SCSI
  thing so you found no point of checking any max size?

- Why the zero alloc, if you are going to paste over it the exact same length. Now if like in scsi
  you need 4 bytes alignment and zero padding yes, but here you do not do this (and probably shouldn't).
  Hence why zero-alloc?

- Looking at sg.h where hdr->cmd_len is defined it stills has a comment of <= 16 you might want to
  remove the comment by now.

Inside here: blk_fill_sghdr_rq() calls blk_verify_command() which does:
(Below cmd[] is the buffer copied from user)

	/* Anybody who can open the device can do a read-safe command */
	if (test_bit(cmd[0], filter->read_ok))
		return 0;

	/* Write-safe commands require a writable open */
	if (test_bit(cmd[0], filter->write_ok) && has_write_perm)
		return 0;

Now I am not sure what type "Commands" you guys intend for these large commands
but if they are say SCSI-VARLEN this test will not work. Also a user might fool
the system with pretending to be "read" a device modifying command.

I would pass len to this test function and only permit these above if command is
<= 16. Any "special" large command is root only.

Thanks
Boaz
