I think it is fine.

Kind of a MD newbie question, but if I understand correctly,
dm_start_time_ns_from_clone is only for bio based multipath, and we just
pass req->io_start_time directly on request based multipath, right? If
I understand the code correctly, start_io_acct is only called for the
bio level DM.

I will update the patches, do a quick round of tests with BIO based and
send a v2.

Thanks a lot,

Gabriel Krisman Bertazi
