Hi Jaegeuk.

Although it is good opinion to have user friendly names in the task
list, but we cannot have such names.

Because, even though bdevname() will provide the correct string. But
there is a limitation from the task struct command length.
The Task struct allows for the name to be maximum of ‘16’ characters in length.
char comm[TASK_COMM_LEN];

/* Task command name length */
#define TASK_COMM_LEN 16
So, the task name would be truncated to ‘16’ characters.

In case like for MMC partitions where partition name can be like:
mmcblk0p18, the name would become f2fs_gc-mmcblk0p18 -> this will be
truncate to “f2fs_gc-mmcblk0p”

Let me know your opinion.
Thanks.
