For example tcm_fc:

tag = sbitmap_queue_get(&se_sess->sess_tag_pool, &cpu);
if (tag < 0)
goto busy;

cmd = &((struct ft_cmd *)se_sess->sess_cmd_map)[tag];

or qla2xxx:

tag = sbitmap_queue_get(&se_sess->sess_tag_pool, &cpu);
if (tag < 0)
return NULL;

cmd = &((struct qla_tgt_cmd *)se_sess->sess_cmd_map)[tag];

The core doesn't know at what offset from the pointer to store the tag
& cpu. Only the individual drivers know their cmd layout.
