This is just a conversion of constants, but the others below I'll fix up
in the next version.

Ok. I wasn't sure how efficient bdevname() was vs. copying the name
around, but that sounds like a good plan if its not too expensive an
operation.

Yes, that sounds good. That is legacy code from the original patch to
blktrace which was rather more limited in scope and wasn't able to print
the flags.

Ah, I though this was an alternative after the comments in the earlier
review, but I can look into it if you think thats better,
