The first two patches in this series are motivated by feedback
from distribution developers, test engineers, and management tool
developers. We need the ability to test and support Linux and
management tools on systems that support more than one DSM family
We also need the ability to test and support new functions without
requiring users to update their kernel. These changes will also
facilate development as we move toward DSM standardization.
The ability to restrict DSM functions to the currently documented
set is still in place.
The third patch cleans up a cosmetic/modinfo parsing issue with one
of the existing module parameters.
Changes in v2:
- Switched from allowing all functions advertised by the
firmware through function 0 to an override module parameter.
Linda Knippers (3):
Allow override of built-in bitmasks for NVDIMM DSMs
Allow specifying a default DSM family
Remove unnecessary newline
