I think two viewpoint exist. An administrator want to
  - performance mesurement
  - which IO aborted it, if any error happend.

In addition, OS vendor want to
  - split out fs problem and device problem

So, candidate of tracepints are
  - jbd activity
  - boundary activity between fs and block layer 

I don't fs expert, it is just idea.
