Here's some code for what I'm suggesting (not even compile tested).
The only change is what's in the "if" clause of the SNP test.  dma_map_sg()
is called with the nents parameter set to one so that it only
processes one sgl entry each time it is called, and doesn't walk the
entire sgl.  Arguably, we don't even need the SNP test and the else
clause -- just always do what's in the if clause.

The corresponding code in storvsc_on_channel_callback would also
have to be changed.   And we still have to set the min_align_mask
so swiotlb will preserve any offset.  Storsvsc already has things set up
so that higher levels ensure there are no holes between sgl entries,
and that needs to stay true.

        if (sg_count) {
                unsigned int hvpgoff, hvpfns_to_add;
                unsigned long offset_in_hvpg = offset_in_hvpage(sgl->offset);
                unsigned int hvpg_count = HVPFN_UP(offset_in_hvpg + length);
