In a typical SCSI setup you'll have remapping several times as the file
block offset visible to an application is different from the LBA on the
LUN. And the LUN LBA is different from the LBA of the drive physically
storing the data block inside the disk array.

To me it sounds like your 1:1 mapping between host LBA and target
back-end LBA is just a special case. What happens in your scenario if
the target bdev is a partition and not a full namespace?

Only because there hasn't been a need. Feel free to add a
BIP_MAPPED_INTEGRITY check to complete_fn.
