Please explain what L2P and FTL mean. Not everyone is familiar with SSD
internals.

Please make this a kernel module parameter instead of a compile-time constant.

Please move these definitions into ufshpb.h since that is the
recommended Linux kernel coding style.

Please move #ifdef CONFIG_SCSI_UFS_HPB / #endif into ufshpb.h. From
Documentation/process/4.Coding.rst: "As a general rule, #ifdef use
should be confined to header files whenever possible."

Please add a comment above this data structure that explains the role
of this data structure and also what "ufsf" stands for.

I don't think that this forward declaration is necessary so please leave it
out.

Please do not declare functions inside .c files inline but instead let
the compiler decide which functions to inline. Modern compilers are really
good at this.

If the release method of a kobj_type is NULL that is a strong sign that
there is something wrong ...

Please attach these sysfs attributes to /sys/class/scsi_device/*/device
instead of creating a new kobject. Consider using the following
scsi_host_template member to define LUN sysfs attributes:

	/*
	 * Pointer to the SCSI device attribute groups for this host,
	 * NULL terminated.
	 */
	const struct attribute_group **sdev_groups;

Please remove the loop from the above function, make this function accept a
SCSI device pointer as argument and call this function from
ufshcd_slave_configure() or ufshcd_hpb_configure().

Since the UFS driver calls scsi_scan_host() from ufshcd_add_lus(), do you
agree that the above wait_event_timeout() call can be eliminated by splitting
ufshpb_init() into two functions and by calling the part below
wait_event_timeout() after scsi_scan_host() has finished?

Should the code in the body of the above loop perhaps be called from inside
ufshcd_slave_destroy()?

Why does this function use async_schedule()?

Thanks,
