Hi Linus, please pull from...

  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/djbw/nvdimm libnvdimm-fixes

...to receive a minor fix for the libnvdimm subsystem.

This is not critical.  The problem can be worked around in userspace by
putting the namespace temporarily into raw mode
(ndctl_namespace_set_raw_mode() from libndctl), but that is awkward for
management utilities.  I would consider it a candidate for 4.2-stable if
it does not make 4.2.

The following changes since commit 52721d9d3334c1cb1f76219a161084094ec634dc:

    libnvdimm: fix namespace seed creation
    A new BLK namespace "seed" device is created whenever the current seed
    is successfully probed.  However, if that namespace is assigned to a BTT
    it may never directly experience a successful probe as it is a
    subordinate device to a BTT configuration.
    The effect of the current code is that no new namespaces can be
    instantiated, after the seed namespace, to consume available BLK DPA
    capacity.  Fix this by treating a successful BTT probe event as a
    successful probe event for the backing namespace.
