Subject: [GIT PULL] libnvdimm fixes for v5.12-rc8 / final
Date: Fri, 16 Apr 2021 20:25:28 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Linus, please pull from: receive a handful of libnvdimm fixups.

The largest change is for a regression that landed during -rc1 for
block-device read-only handling. Vaibhav found a new use for the
ability (originally introduced by virtio_pmem) to call back to the
platform to flush data, but also found an original bug in that
implementation. Lastly, Arnd cleans up some compile warnings in dax.

This has all appeared in -next with no reported issues.


The following changes since commit e49d033bddf5b565044e2abe4241353959bc9120:
