SG: work with the SCSI fixed maximum allocations.
SCSI sg table allocation has a maximum size (of SCSI_MAX_SG_SEGMENTS, currently 128) and this will cause a BUG_ON() in SCSI if something tries an allocation over it. This patch adds a size limit to the chaining allocator to allow the specification of the maximum allocation size for chaining, so we always chain in units of the maximum SCSI allocation size.
