We can create more than one target on a lightnvm
device by specifying its begin lun and end lun.

But only specify the physical address area is not
enough, we need to get the corresponding non-
intersection logical address area division from
the backend device's logcial address space.
Otherwise the targets on the device might use
the same logical addresses cause incorrect
information in the device's l2p table.

Changes since v1:
- rename some variables
- add parentheses for clarity
- make gennvm_get_area return int, and add one more sector_t*  parameter
to pass the begin sector of the corresponding target
- rebase to v4.5-rc1

Did you mean page_shift here?

Yes, It's a spelling mistake, will correct it in next version.

I can fix it in the version I apply. No problem.
