We must prevent driver from submitting s/g lists > vq size to device.

Either tell linux to avoid s/g lists that are too long, or
simply fail request if this happens, or refuse to attach driver to device.

Later option would look something like this within probe:

        for (i = VIRTIO_SCSI_VQ_BASE; i < num_vqs; i++)
                if (vqs[i]->num < MAX_SG_USED_BY_LINUX)
                        goto err;

I don't know what's MAX_SG_USED_BY_LINUX though.
