We already have all that, AFAICT. Command is enqueued, then an event
triggers for command completion, then we look at results. The only thing
missing for completeness is slot/EP context tracers (which I've pointed
you to) so we can see what changes each command cause to the different
Frankly, I don't think printing out context pointers brings
anything. What can you do with that address? :-p Same goes for cmd
pointer, it brings nothing; gives no insight into the problem
We certainly need to know which command was enqueued, the slot, etc. But
addresses... not so sure.

no need to apologize, you didn't know :-)
