Subject: [GIT PULL] libnvdimm fixes for v5.2-rc1

Hi Linus, please pull from:

tags/libnvdimm-fixes-5.2-rc1 receive just a small collection of fixes this time around. The
new virtio-pmem driver is nearly ready, but some last minute
device-mapper acks and virtio questions made it prudent to await v5.3.
Other major topics that were brewing on the linux-nvdimm mailing list

go upstream through Andrew's tree.

These have seen multiple -next releases with no reported issues.

  userspace test harness can ensure all required test modules are
