    SubjectRe: [dm-devel] [PATCH] Fix I/O counts in vmstat
    Hi Mikulas,

    > The decision whether bio is counted or not is made by the code that
    > submits the bio. This leads to some problems:

    How about convering dm targets to use generic_make_request?

    Since submit_bio counts vm events, it seems natural for
    caller to decide which function to use.
    Device driver does not know whether the requested I/O is
    for vm-to-device or device-to-device.
    We could still use iostat to measure throughput of individual
    block devices.

    Thanks,
