...to receive a regression fix for a problem that was introduced in

In 4.7-rc1 we introduced auto-probing for the ACPI DSM (device-
specific-method) format that the platform firmware implements for
nvdimm devices. We initially fixed a regression in probing the QEMU DSM
implementation by making acpi_check_dsm() tolerant of the way QEMU
reports the "0 DSMs supported" condition. However, that broke HPE
platforms since that tolerance caused the driver to mistakenly match
the 1-zero-byte response those platforms give to "unknown" commands.
Instead, we simply make the driver tolerant of not finding any
supported DSMs.  This has been tested to work with both QEMU and HPE

This commit has appeared in a -next release with no reported issues.

    nfit: make DIMM DSMs optional
    Commit 4995734e973a "acpi, nfit: fix acpi_check_dsm() vs zero functions
    implemented" attempted to fix a QEMU regression by supporting its usage
    of a zero-mask as a valid response to a DSM-family probe request.
    However, this behavior breaks HP platforms that return a zero-mask by
    default causing the probe to misidentify the DSM-family.
    Instead, the QEMU regression can be fixed by simply not requiring the DSM
    family to be identified.
    This effectively reverts commit 4995734e973a, and removes the DSM
    requirement from the init path.
