There are LLD and ULD drivers in the SCSI subsystem. Please mention the
driver type explicitly. I assume that you are referring to SCSI ULDs
since only SCSI ULD drivers call device_add_disk()?

Could the above comment be made shorter by only mentioning that blktrace
may have been set up before or concurrently with device_add_disk() and
that device_add_disk() calls blk_register_queue()?

How about moving the sg_debugfs_dir check into blk_sg_debugfs_init()?

Thanks,

Bart.
