Scatter-gather lists (sgl_s) are frequently used as data carriers in
the block layer. For example the SCSI and NVMe subsystems interchange
data with the block layer using sgl_s. The sgl API is declared in
<linux/scatterlist.h>

The author has extended these transient sgl use cases to a store (i.e.
a ramdisk) in the scsi_debug driver. Other new potential uses of sgl_s
could be for caches. When this extra step is taken, the need to copy
between sgl_s becomes apparent. The patchset adds sgl_copy_sgl() and
two other sgl operations.

The existing sgl_alloc_order() function can be seen as a replacement
for vmalloc() for large, long-term allocations.  For what seems like
no good reason, sgl_alloc_order() currently restricts its total
allocation to less than or equal to 4 GiB. vmalloc() has no such
restriction.

Changes since v1 [posted 20201016]:
  - Bodo Stroesser pointed out a problem with the nesting of
    kmap_atomic() [called via sg_miter_next()] and kunmap_atomic()
    calls [called via sg_miter_stop()] and proposed a solution that
    simplifies the previous code.

  - the new implementation of the three functions has shorter periods
    when pre-emption is disabled (but has more them). This should
    make operations on large sgl_s more pre-emption "friendly" with
    a relatively small performance hit.

  - sgl_memset return type changed from void to size_t and is the
    number of bytes actually (over)written. That number is needed
    anyway internally so may as well return it as it may be useful to
    the caller.

This patchset is against lk 5.9.0

This patch removes a check done by sgl_alloc_order() before it starts
any allocations. The comment before the removed code says: "Check for
integer overflow" arguably gives a false sense of security. The right
hand side of the expression in the condition is resolved as u32 so
cannot exceed UINT32_MAX (4 GiB) which means 'length' cannot exceed
that amount. If that was the intention then the comment above it
could be dropped and the condition rewritten more clearly as:
     if (length > UINT32_MAX) <<failure path >>;

The author's intention is to use sgl_alloc_order() to replace
vmalloc(unsigned long) for a large allocation (debug ramdisk).
vmalloc has no limit at 4 GiB so its seems unreasonable that:
    sgl_alloc_order(unsigned long long length, ....)
does. sgl_s made with sgl_alloc_order(chainable=false) have equally
sized segments placed in a scatter gather array. That allows O(1)
navigation around a big sgl using some simple integer maths.

Having previously sent a patch to fix a memory leak in
sg_alloc_order() take the opportunity to put a one line comment above
sgl_free()'s declaration that it is not suitable when order > 0 . The
mis-use of sgl_free() when order > 0 was the reason for the memory
leak. The other users of sgl_alloc_order() in the kernel where
checked and found to handle free-ing properly.

Both the SCSI and NVMe subsystems receive user data from the block
layer in scatterlist_s (aka scatter gather lists (sgl) which are
often arrays). If drivers in those subsystems represent storage
(e.g. a ramdisk) or cache "hot" user data then they may also
choose to use scatterlist_s. Currently there are no sgl to sgl
operations in the kernel. Start with a copy.

After enabling copies between scatter gather lists (sgl_s),
another storage related operation is to compare two sgl_s.
This new function is modelled on NVMe's Compare command and
the SCSI VERIFY(BYTCHK=1) command. Like memcmp() this function
returns false on the first miscompare and stop comparing.

The existing sg_zero_buffer() function is a bit restrictive.
For example protection information (PI) blocks are usually
initialized to 0xff bytes. As its name suggests sgl_memset()
is modelled on memset(). One difference is the type of the
val argument which is u8 rather than int. Plus it returns
the number of bytes (over)written.

AFAICS, there are 2 unneeded lines in the new implementation
of sgl_memset. Please see details below.

The above line will not change miter.consumed in all loop cycles but the
last, since len will be miter.length for all loop cycles but the last
and sg_miter_next initializes miter.consumed to contain miter.length.
In the last loop cycle it does not harm if miter.consumed stays bigger
than len. So this line is not needed and can be removed.

Since the code does not use nested sg_miter, the sg_miter_stop() here is
not needed, you can remove that line.

Either the next call to sg_miter_next will call sg_miter_stop before
preparing next chunk of mem, or sg_miter_stop is called behind the loop.
