OK.  I tend to use braces where a single statement but multiple lines.

Sounds good.

Your worrying is correct.  I'm going to create a empty 'data' file for nvme
coredump.  Assuming that devcd* always contains the 'data' file at least,
we can simply write to 'data' when the device coredump is no longer needed,
and prepare for the newer coredump.
