Sorry about being late to the party; this one has been sitting in my
'to review' queue for far too long :(

Nit: 'host_ack' looks a bit generic for an exported function... would
'virtio_pmem_host_ack' maybe be better?

I don't see an EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL() for this function... should it get
one, or should it be made static?

Hm... by the comment above I would have thought that this is not really
an error, but rather a temporary condition? Maybe downgrade this to
dev_info()?

Does it make sense to kick if you couldn't add at all?

If this is dev_info, I think the error above really should be dev_info
as well (and maybe also log the error value)?

Nit: The comment should start with an otherwise empty /* line.

I have only some more minor comments; on the whole, this looks good to
me.
