So these reported values seem to generate some interest.  Adding Akinobu
Mita who also planned to wire them up to the thermal framework.  I don't
really know either upper layer so I'm not sure which is the right one,

we add a lot of kernel boilerplate code for information people can
trivially get using nvme-cli.
