sg: disable interrupts inside sg_copy_buffer
The callers of sg_copy_buffer must disable interrupts before calling it (since it uses kmap_atomic). Some callers use it on interrupt-disabled code but some need to take the trouble to disable interrupts just for this. No wonder they forget about it and we hit a bug like: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11529 James said that it might be better to disable interrupts inside the function rather than risk the callers getting it wrong.
