These warnings popped up in v3.14-rc1. (In v3.13 bvprv was a pointer
initialized to NULL.) This patch is not urgent, but it would still be

there any tree that queues NVMe fixes to be applied during this release

Thanks. So perhaps that variable could be renamed to previous (or its
more common alias prev),
