Looking at the code, not tested though, it will just add one more 'C' line for bounced bio, and that's it? The blktrace will get way more 'C' lines for normal request based devices and it needs to be handled anyway. Am I missing something?Hmmm... maybe I'm confused. Wouldn't it cause duplicate completions for all rq based drivers too?
Yes, blktrace will see both of completions for rq and bio's it contains from now on, and I thought it's your intention? For the bounced bio's, it'll see one more completion per bio.
The users of older blktrace might get confused by this, thus changing the tool is inevitable regardless of the bounced bio's.
