This patch is not acceptable because it adds support for tag tracing to the
legacy block layer only. Any patch that adds a new feature to the legacy block
layer must also add it to blk-mq.

To be honest, I don't understand your point, can you give me more explanation?

The legacy block layer will be removed as soon as blk-mq provides all the functionality of the legacy block layer and as soon as it performs at least as well as the legacy block layer for all use cases. If new features are added to the legacy block layer but not to blk-mq that prevents removal of the legacy block layer. Hence the requirement I explained in my previous e-mail.
