Subject: [GIT PULL] libnvdimm fixes for v5.11-rc7
Date: Sun, 7 Feb 2021 09:37:21 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Linus, please pull from:

tags/libnvdimm-fixes-5.11-rc7 receive a fix for a crash scenario that has been present since
the initial merge, a minor regression in sysfs attribute visibility,
and a fix for some flexible array warnings. The bulk of this pull is
an update to the libnvdimm unit test infrastructure to test non-ACPI
platforms. Given there is zero regression risk for test updates, and
the tests enable validation of bits headed towards the next merge
window, I saw no reason to hold the new tests back. Santosh originally
submitted this before the v5.11 window opened.

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