Agree.
We see that the public ufs-utils (https://github.com/westerndigitalcorporation/ufs-utils) that uses this infrastructure,
is gaining momentum, and currently being used not only by chipset and flash vendors,
but by end customers as well.
This change will e.g. enable, field application engineers to debug issues in a safer mode.

Right.
bsg=y and ufshcd=m is a bad idea, and should be avoided.
