This patch series wires up the gen_nvdimm module to acpi, and adds
in support for use as a generic block device and for use with ext2's
xip. This is not meant to be a final solution. There are no cache
flushes for writes to the device. I'm also not happy with walking
a list of extents to find where a block lives. Also noteworthy is
that this code will not handle multiple FITs. Having said all that,
the code does function.
Comments are welcome.
