What specific UFS commands do you need to make to the device that the
current driver does not support?

And yes, this is a trick question as there are about 4 different major
forks that I know of of the UFS driver in different vendor trees, all of
which support different types of UFS commands :(

I doubt it, what neds to happen is getting all of the functionality that
lives in these different forks all merged upstream into the in-kernel
driver. Then I bet all of the needed functionality you are looking for
will be there.

good luck!
