Sorry, that is a typo the bus is indeed an struct nvdimm_bus instance.

I like to show an initial infrastructure consumer with the initial
implementation in one patch.   Makes it easier to catch premature
implementation of features.

The NVDIMM sub-system is enabled by an external provider.  We have the
e820 type-12 provider and the NFIT provider that select LIBNVDIMM.

That would depend on Rafael being open to changing the
acpi_str_to_uuid() prototype to take an uuid_le.

Ok, fixed.

Whoops, fixed.

Yeah, probably better that way. Done.

I generally don't see the point of fixing up occasional small incursions
over 80 characters if it makes the code more amenable to grep.

Later on the series there's a to_nfit_memdev() that takes a struct
device *, and this one is an internal helper.

Hmm, nothing worthwhile.  I'll merge them into one menuconfig
CONFIG_LIBNVDIMM tristate.

This is the private private-header in the sense that it defines
infrastructure that is only meant for the core.  Drivers (btt, pmem,
blk, etc) must not include nd-private.h.  I'll rename it "nd-core.h" to
make this more clear.

struct nvdimm_bus_descriptor is defined there and a forward declaration
does not make sense since we'll need the rest of the header later in the
series.

This *is* the ioctl multiplexer.  The generic ioctl implementation in
libnvdimm uses the ndctl_fn to call back out to the provider to process
the command.  In the case of ACPI this maps to a _DSM (device specific
method), for nfit_test it's a emulated implementation, and for
e820-type-12 this is obviously not implemented.


Reflowed patch with these fixes follows...


8<-----
Subject: libnvdimm, nfit: initial libnvdimm infrastructure and NFIT support

From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com>

A libnvdimm bus is the anchor device for registering nvdimm resources and
interfaces, for example, a character control device, nvdimm devices,
and I/O region devices.  The ACPI NFIT (NVDIMM Firmware Interface Table)
is one possible platform description for such non-volatile memory
resources in a system.  The nfit.ko driver attaches to the "ACPI0012"
device that indicates the presence of the NFIT and parses the table to
register a struct nvdimm_bus instance.

Just use shorter type names or add a line break before the symbol
names.  Too long lines are highly annoying.

Note that "acpi_nfit_memory_map" is the identifier chosen by ACPICA,
I'm just a consumer.  That said I've gone and done a 80 column cleanup
across all the patches.

+	  NFIT, or otherwise can discover NVDIMM resources, a libnvdimm
+	  bus is registered to advertise PMEM (persistent memory)
+	  namespaces (/dev/pmemX) and BLK (sliding mmio window(s))
+	  namespaces (/dev/ndX). A PMEM namespace refers to a memory
+	  resource that may span multiple DIMMs and support DAX (see
+	  CONFIG_DAX).  A BLK namespace refers to an NVDIMM control
+	  region which exposes an mmio register set for windowed
+	  access mode to non-volatile memory.
