    Pull libnvdimm updates from Dan Williams:
     "Outside of the new ACPI-NFIT hot-add support this pull request is more
      notable for what it does not contain, than what it does.  There were a
      handful of development topics this cycle, dax get_user_pages, dax
      fsync, and raw block dax, that need more more iteration and will wait
      for 4.5.
      The patches to make devm and the pmem driver NUMA aware have been in
      -next for several weeks.  The hot-add support has not, but is
      contained to the NFIT driver and is passing unit tests.  The coredump
      support is straightforward and was looked over by Jeff.  All of it has
      received a 0day build success notification across 107 configs.
       - Add support for the ACPI 6.0 NFIT hot add mechanism to process
         updates of the NFIT at runtime.
       - Teach the coredump implementation how to filter out DAX mappings.
       - Introduce NUMA hints for allocations made by the pmem driver, and
         as a side effect all devm allocations now hint their NUMA node by
