Subject: Re: [PATCH] drm/vmwgfx: Fix scatterlist unmapping

Hi, Robin,

Thanks for the patch. It was some time since I put together that code, 
but I remember hitting something similar to

https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-kernel-70/%27nents%27-argument-of-dma_unmap_sg-4175621964/

Even if it's clear from the documentation that orig_nents should be used.

/Thomas
