Verma, Vishal L Nov. 4, 2019, 8:16 p.m. UTC
The motivation for this change is that we want to refrain from
(re)configuring what appear to be partially configured namespaces.
Namespaces may end up in a state that looks partially configured when
the kernel isn't able to enable a namespace due to mismatched
PAGE_SIZE expectations. In such cases, ndctl should not treat those
as unconfigured 'seed' namespaces, and reuse them.

Add a new ndctl_namespace_is_configuration_idle API, whish tests whether a
namespace is active, and whether it is partially configured. If neither
are true, then it can be used for (re)configuration. Additionally, deal
with the corner case of ND_DEVICE_NAMESPACE_IO (legacy PMEM) namespaces
which always appear as configured, since their size cannot be changed,
but they are also always re-configurable.

Use this API in namespace_reconfig() and namespace_create() to enable
this partial configuration detection.

Changes in v3:
- Remove stray leftovers in sysfs.{c,h} and namespace_is_writable() from
  libndctl.c

Changes in v2:
- Remove sysfs_attr_writable, and just check for the nstype of
  ND_DEVICE_NAMESPACE_IO (Dan)
- Rename ndctl_namespace_is_configurable to
  ndctl_namespace_is_configuration_idle (Dan)
