Subject: [PATCH] lib/scatterlist: introduce sg_nents_for_dma() helper

From: Andy Shevchenko <andy.shevchenko@...il.com>

Sometimes the user needs to split each entry on the mapped scatter list
due to DMA length constrains. This helper returns a number of entities
assuming that each of them is not bigger than supplied maximum length.

Patch was sent in 2016 initially to the DMA engine sub-system.
Link:
  https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9389821/
This was part of a larger series:
  https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/linux-dmaengine/list/?q=sg_nents_for_dma&archive=both&series=&submitter=&delegate=&state=*

I'm not sure if this is supposed to go into DMAEngine or lib/scatterlist.
It doesn't look like lib/scatterlist is managed by DMAEngine, so (by using
the `get_maintainers.pl` script) I'm sending this patch to this group of
parties.

Thanks
Alex
