Merge branch 'for-5.8/papr_scm' into libnvdimm-for-next
Include the papr_scm health retrieval feature for v5.8-rc2. The
functionality was initially posted well in advance of the merge window,
but review comments and a late build-bot warning kept them out of the
v5.8-rc1 libnvdimm pull request.
These patches are tied to specific features that were committed to
customers in upcoming distros releases (RHEL and SLES) whose time-lines
are tied to 5.8 kernel release.
Being able to track the health of an nvdimm is critical for our
customers that are running workloads leveraging papr-scm nvdimms.
Missing the 5.8 kernel would mean missing the distro timelines and
shifting forward the availability of this feature in distro kernels by
at least 6 months.
