Merge branch 'libnvdimm-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/nvdimm/nvdimm
Pull libnvdimm fixes from Dan Williams: - Four fixes for "flush hint" support. Flush hints are addresses advertised by the ACPI 6+ NFIT (NVDIMM Firmware Interface Table) that when written and fenced guarantee that writes pending in platform write buffers (outside the cpu) have been flushed to media. They might also be used by hypervisors as a trigger condition to flush guest-persistent memory ranges to storage. Fix a potential data corruption issue, a broken definition of the hint array, a wrong allocation size for the unit test implementation of the flush hint table, and missing NULL check in an error path. The unit test, while it did not prevent these bugs from being merged, at least triggered occasional crashes in advance of production usages. - Fix handling of ACPI DSM error status results. The DSM mechanism allows communication with platform and memory device firmware. We correctly parse known errors, but were silently ignoring others. Fix it to consistently fail any command with a non-zero status return that we otherwise do not interpret / handle. * 'libnvdimm-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/nvdimm/nvdimm: libnvdimm, region: fix flush hint table thinko nfit: fail DSMs that return non-zero status by default libnvdimm: fix devm_nvdimm_memremap() error path tools/testing/nvdimm: fix allocation range for mock flush hint tables nvdimm: fix PHYS_PFN/PFN_PHYS mixup
