[PATCH] blk-mq: export blk_mq_submit_bio symbol
From: Praveen Kumar
Date: Thu Sep 09 2021 - 01:37:14 EST
There are use-cases like replication where need to hook the blk I/O
operations for devices and perform specific operation and fallback to
its original I/O operations.
Prior to v5.9 there was make_request_fn and then blk_mq_submit_bio
exported apis, which provided infrastructure to drivers to develop these
features. However in v5.10-rc1 with below commit the API was removed
from the export list.

This patch exports the blk_mq_submit_bio symbol to provide flexibility
to the drivers.
