Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH] block: add missing block_bio_complete() tracepoint

The block_bio_complete() TP has been missed so long, so that bio-based
drivers haven't been able to trace its IO behavior. Add it.

In some rare cases, such as loop_switch, @bio->bi_bdev can be NULL.
Thus convert it to TRACE_EVENT_CONDITION() as Steven suggested.

Now I see that it seems TRACE_EVENT_CONDITION() can protect event tracing from such condition, but what about other users of the TP like blktrace? I think it'll still get NULL pointer dereference on bdev_get_queue() after the change, right? If so, convert to T_E_C() looks meaningless IMHO. Do I miss something?


 From now on, request-based drivers will also get BLK_TA_COMPLETEs for
all bio's in requests. This needs to be handled in userland properly.

Also remove external use of the TP in DM and unexport it.

* v2:
  - Merge previous patches into one as suggested by Tejun.
  - Drop BIO_COMPLETE_MASK. Now I think it should be handled in userland
    like other (maybe duplicated, in some sense) bio complete reports.
