Hi Avri,

Thanks for the additional clarification. I think we need HPB support in
the upstream kernel. A possible approach is to start a discussion about
how to integrate HPB support in the upstream kernel and to defer posting
new implementations until agreement about an approach has been achieved.
Is there e.g. an alternative for avoiding deadlocks other than using the
blk-mq reserved tag feature for the commands that manage the L2P tables?

Thanks,

Bart.
