Since the open, close and finish operations support modifying zone data
I propose to characterize these as write commands. How about the
following additional changes:
- Make bio_check_ro() refuse open/close/flush/reset zone operations for
read-only partitions (see also commit a32e236eb93e ("Partially revert
"block: fail op_is_write() requests to read-only partitions"") # v4.18).
- In submit_bio(), change op_is_write(bio_op(bio)) ? "WRITE" : "READ"
into something that uses blk_op_str().
- Add open/close/flush zone support be added in blk_partition_remap().
