Please balance braces in if-statements as required by the kernel coding style.

Is the above comment perhaps a reference to blk_register_queue()? If so, please
mention the name of that function explicitly.

How are do_blk_trace_setup() calls serialized against the debugfs directory
creation code in blk_register_queue()? Perhaps via q->blk_trace_mutex? Are
mutex lock and unlock calls for that mutex perhaps missing from
compat_blk_trace_setup()?

How about adding a lockdep_assert_held(&q->blk_trace_mutex) statement in
do_blk_trace_setup()?

Thanks,

Bart.
