Ming Lei - Aug. 6, 2013, 12:52 a.m.
Some host controllers(such as xHCI) can support building
packet from discontinuous buffers, so introduce one flag
and helper for this kind of host controllers, then the
feature can help some applications(such as usbnet) by
supporting arbitrary length of sg buffers.
