https://github.com/pmem/ndctl/releases/tag/v63

This release incorporates functionality up to the 4.20 kernel, and a
number of bug fixes and improvements.

Highlights include switching the documentation build to asciidoctor by
default, fixes to destroy-namespace for reporting the number of
namespaces acted upon, using the namespace badblocks listings exported
by the kernel, and making them available to non-root users, a new helper
for retrieving the dirty-shutdown-count, reverting the udev rule to set
the shutdown count latch and cache the dirty-shutdown-count, and fixing
the ndctl-monitor daemon to exit successfully in the absence of NVDIMMs.
