Ok, will try that.
The more I think of it, the more it looks to me like a generic thing : take an
sglist, and an array of sizes, and split the sglist into several sglists, each
of the defined size in the array.

Or more code-like speaking :
- sglist_split(struct scatterlist *sg_int, size_t *sizes, int nb_sizes,
struct scatterlist **sg_out)
- and sg_out is an array of nb_sizes (struct scatterlist *sg)

So I will try that out. Maybe if that works out for pxa_camera, Jens or Russell
would accept that into lib/scatterlist.c.

Cheers.
