Is this really sufficient? Shouldn't concurrent do_blk_trace_setup()
calls that refer to the same request queue be serialized to really
prevent that debugfs attribute creation fails?

How about using the block device name instead of the partition name in
the error message since the concurrency context is the block device and
not the partition?

Thanks,

Bart.
