Don't clear REQ_HIPRI for bio-based drivers. Device mapper will need to
see this flag in order to support polling.

I notice that the diff header indicates that the code base is from
linux-2.6. Or it's just the name of your directory, while the code base
is for the latest upstream 5.12?

What if dm device is built upon mq devices that are not capable of
polling, i.e., mq devices without QUEUE_FLAG_POLL set? Then this dm
device shall not support polling.

It's just the name of the git repository. The patch is against 5.12-rc1.

We will check if the underlying queue has QUEUE_FLAG_POLL in __map_bio - 
see this piece of code:

        case DM_MAPIO_REMAPPED:
                /* the bio has been remapped so dispatch it */
                trace_block_bio_remap(clone, bio_dev(io->orig_bio), sector);
                if (clone->bi_opf & REQ_HIPRI &&
                    test_bit(QUEUE_FLAG_POLL, &clone->bi_bdev->bd_disk->queue->queue_flags)) {
                        ci->poll_queue = clone->bi_bdev->bd_disk->queue;
                        ci->poll_cookie = submit_bio_noacct_mq_direct(clone);
                } else {
                        ci->poll_cookie = BLK_QC_T_NONE;
                        submit_bio_noacct(clone);
                }
                break;
