block: add bio_copy_user_iov support to blk_rq_map_user_iov
With this patch, blk_rq_map_user_iov uses bio_copy_user_iov when a low level driver needs padding or a buffer in sg_iovec isn't aligned. That is, it uses temporary kernel buffers instead of mapping user pages directly. When a LLD needs padding, later blk_rq_map_sg needs to extend the last entry of a scatter list. bio_copy_user_iov guarantees that there is enough space for padding by using temporary kernel buffers instead of user pages. blk_rq_map_user_iov needs buffers in sg_iovec to be aligned. The comment in blk_rq_map_user_iov indicates that drivers/scsi/sg.c also needs buffers in sg_iovec to be aligned. Actually, drivers/scsi/sg.c works with unaligned buffers in sg_iovec (it always uses temporary kernel buffers).
