[SCSI] aacraid: 17 element sg performance update



Received From Mark Salyzyn.

The Jaguar and Corsair class of adapters (2410, 2810, 2610, 21610, CERC)
perform better (about 10% better read performance, write performance
neutral) with current Firmware if the OS limits the number of scatter
gather elements to 17 per request.
