Thanks for your information.
I have several questions again.
When the legacy block layer will be replaced by blk-mq?
And "include/trece/event/block.h .. scsi.h" will also be changed?
Do you have the related git rep or mail list about this topic?
Maybe this is great big change, I am very interested in that. And want to have a look at.

By the way, these patches are not to add new feature, they are just to add print tag along with the other exist
Printed request parameters. The blk-mq is now still using "include/trace/evet/block.h" defined trace events.

For example:
void blk_mq_start_request(struct request *rq)
{
...
...
trace_block_rq_issue(q, rq);
...
...
}
Do you mean that this will also be removed/replaced by someone else?
