OK.

Yup.

Yes and no. I personally like to have the big hammer when tracing customer
problems and filter out maunally later. I initially had a tracepoint for each
of nvme_setup_flush(), nvme_setup_discard(), nvme_setup_rw() but decided it
was too fine grained.

nvme_setup_cmd() has the nice side effect that all commands, including
userspace passtrough commands must pass it. This was extremely helpful in the
customer bug which inspired me to implement this tracepoint.

Martin, Keith, Sagi, Hannes, any preferences here?
