SubjectRe: [PATCH] nvme: replace meaningless judgement by checking whether req is null

No no, go ahead and remove the existing check just as you've done. That
check becomes redundant with the safer one you're adding, and we don't
want redundant checks in the fast path. My only suggestion is to use
the same dev_warn() in your new check.

The tagset's queue_depth is a valid point to mention as well. The
dirver's current indirect check is not necessarily in sync with the
actual tagset.
