[NET]: Fix incorrect sg_mark_end() calls.
This fixes scatterlist corruptions added by commit 68e3f5dd4db62619fdbe520d36c9ebf62e672256 [CRYPTO] users: Fix up scatterlist conversion errors The issue is that the code calls sg_mark_end() which clobbers the sg_page() pointer of the final scatterlist entry. The first part fo the fix makes skb_to_sgvec() do __sg_mark_end(). After considering all skb_to_sgvec() call sites the most correct solution is to call __sg_mark_end() in skb_to_sgvec() since that is what all of the callers would end up doing anyways. I suspect this might have fixed some problems in virtio_net which is the sole non-crypto user of skb_to_sgvec(). Other similar sg_mark_end() cases were converted over to __sg_mark_end() as well. Arguably sg_mark_end() is a poorly named function because it doesn't just "mark", it clears out the page pointer as a side effect, which is what led to these bugs in the first place. The one remaining plain sg_mark_end() call is in scsi_alloc_sgtable() and arguably it could be converted to __sg_mark_end() if only so that we can delete this confusing interface from linux/scatterlist.h Signed-off-by: David S.
