So I notice that this is based on linux-next while libnvdimm-for-next
is based on v5.15-rc4. Since I'm not Andrew I went ahead and rebased
these onto v5.15-rc4, tested that, and then merged with linux-next to
resolve the conflicts and tested again.

My merge resolution is here [1]. Christoph, please have a look. The
rebase and the merge result are both passing my test and I'm now going
to review the individual patches. However, while I do that and collect
acks from DM and EROFS folks, I want to give Stephen a heads up that
this is coming. Primarily I want to see if someone sees a better
strategy to merge this, please let me know, but if not I plan to walk
Stephen and Linus through the resolution.
