Hi Linus, please pull from:

tags/libnvdimm-for-5.4 receive some reworks to better support nvdimms on powerpc and an
nvdimm security interface update.

There was some last minute build breakage detected in -next so I've
left a patch that finalizes the powerpc compatibility work and some
other fixes out of this pull request.  The build fix requires a new
symbol export that needs an ack from ppc folks, so I'm going to save
that for a post -rc1 update. "libnvdimm/dax: Pick the right alignment
default when creating dax devices" not typically something I would
send during the -rc cycle, but I see no strong reason for it to wait
until v5.5.

The pending fixes for others watching are:

  libnvdimm: Use PAGE_SIZE instead of SZ_4K for align check
(2019-09-05 16:11:14 -0700)

libnvdimm for 5.4

- Rework the nvdimm core to accommodate architectures with different page
  sizes and ones that can change supported huge page sizes at boot
  time rather than a compile time constant.

- Introduce a distinct 'frozen' attribute for the nvdimm security state
  since it is independent of the locked state.

- Miscellaneous fixups.

      libnvdimm/of_pmem: Provide a unique name for bus provider
      libnvdimm/pmem: Advance namespace seed for specific probe errors

struct page size change

      libnvdimm/label: Remove the dpa align check
      libnvdimm: Use PAGE_SIZE instead of SZ_4K for align check
