    Not for the case being discussed in this thread, adapter-wide tags.

    AFAICS, no file in include/scsi/* or drivers/scsi/* ever calls
    blk_queue_init_tags() with a non-NULL third arg.

    The block tagging capability being discussed here is poorly validated
    due to overall underuse, and its never been used in SCSI AFAIK.
