It strikes me after reading the above that it would be useful to have
a cxl list option that enumerates the command support on a given
memdev. Basically a "query-to-json" helper.

This is asking for the kernel's include/linux/overflow.h to be
imported into ndctl so that struct_size() could be used here. The file
is MIT licensed, just the small matter of factoring out only the MIT
licensed bits.

Other than that, looks good to me.
