From: Ocean He <hehy1@lenovo.com>

There is no need to finish entire loop to execute NDD_ALIASING bit test
against every nvdimm->flags. In practice, all the nd_mapping->nvdimm
have the same flags.

Because the check of alias is "if (alias)" but not 
"if (alias == nd_region->ndr_mappings)", there is no function change while
just save a few cycles.

A test to check if all the nd_mapping->nvdimm have the same flags, using 
Lenovo ThinkSystem SR630 and 4.18-rc6.

I think we can go a step further, and instead of the 'break' followed
by a check for the 'alias' variable, in the loop, just return
ND_DEVICE_NAMESPACE_PMEM if the NDD_ALIASING bit is found for any
mapping. Outside the loop, simply return ND_DEVICE_NAMESPACE_IO. That
makes it much cleaner and now we can get rid of 'alias' entirely.

Hi Vishal,

Thanks for comments and I would send version 2 patch later.
