 From my totally subjective experience on the filesystem side (user of 
bio_endio) all HW block drivers I used including Nvme isci, sata... etc. 
end up calling bio_endio in softirq. The big exception to that is the 
vdX drivers under KVM. Which is very Ironic to me.
I wish we could make all drivers be uniform in this regard.

But maybe I'm just speaking crap. Its only from my limited debuging 
expirience.

Thanks
