You mean, checking rq->cmd_type == REQ_TYPE_BLOCK_PC, right?

I'm wondering about how to check that in blk_queue_split().
At the moment when blk_queue_split() is called, it's even before a request
is mapped e.g. in blk_sq_make_request().
Unlike scsi drivers where it's easy to get cmd->rq, blk_queue_split()
doesn't seem to be able to get a request by blk_get_request().

Or am I missing something?

Thanks,
Dongsu
