How about: 
vhost: fix async copy failure on buffers cross page boundary

Technically we can do that, however, it will also introduce significant overhead:
 - overhead from adding additional logic in vhost async data path to handle the case
 - overhead from dma device to consume 2 iovecs
In average, I don't think dma copy can benefit too much for the buffer which are split into multiple pages. 
CPU copy shall be a more suitable method.
