[BLOCK] Clear sg entry before filling in blk_rq_map_sg()
Jens Axboe [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 11:02:33 +0000 (13:02 +0200)]
The memset() of the sg entry was originally removed, because it could
overwrite a chain pointer. But it's quite OK to memset() it when we know
it's a valid entry, since it can't contain a chain pointer.
