Hi Jens,

As I explained 2 merge windows before, we use nvdimm as non-volatiled
memory, that is, the
memory objects are stored on nvdimm as memory object which are
non-volatiled. This is why
you see the pointers in the data structure, e.g. the list is stored on
NVDIMM area, and the code
goes through the list directly on the NVDIMM, we don't load them into
memory.

This is not block device interface.

I try to ask Dan Williams, Jan Kara, Christoph Hellwig and Hannes
Reineicke to help to review,
hope there are some experts may help to take a look.

Coly Li
