This is within powerpc and we are implementing details w.r.t PAPR spec. 
There is a Qemu implementation that is getting reviewed here
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-nvdimm/161650723087.2959.8703728357980727008.stgit@6532096d84d3

But with respect to this patch, we can take that independent of the Qemu 
backend implementation.
