On second thought, it might make more sense just to allocate a couple
of scatterlist structs on the stack every time instead. See if this
patch resolves the problem. It tests fine for me on my Intel
processor, and I expect it will resolve the problem on the AMD

This patch is not in the upstream yet. We expect it may appear
in a different form later.
