Subject[PATCH v2 1/2] xen-blkfront: improve aproximation of required grants per request
Date
Improve the calculation of required grants to process a request by
using nr_phys_segments instead of always assuming a request is going
to use all posible segments.

nr_phys_segments contains the number of scatter-gather DMA addr+len
pairs, which is basically what we put at every granted page.
for_each_sg iterates over the DMA addr+len pairs and uses a grant
page for each of them.
