Yeah, looks this one is missed, so we need the following patch:

Subject: [PATCH] s390: scsi: use sg helper to iterate over scatterlist

Unlike the legacy I/O path, scsi-mq preallocates a large array to hold
the scatterlist for each request. This static allocation can consume
substantial amounts of memory on modern controllers which support a
large number of concurrently outstanding requests.

To facilitate a switch to a smaller static allocation combined with a
dynamic allocation for requests that need it, we need to make sure all
SCSI drivers handle chained scatterlists correctly.

Convert remaining drivers that directly dereference the scatterlist
array to using the iterator functions.
