If the device backend is not persistent memory for the nvdimm, there is
need for explicit IO flushes on the backend to ensure persistence.

On SPAPR, the issue is addressed by adding a new hcall to request for
an explicit flush from the guest when the backend is not pmem. So, the
approach here is to convey when the hcall flush is required in a device
tree property. The guest once it knows the device backend is not pmem,
makes the hcall whenever flush is required.

To set the device tree property, the patch introduces a new papr specific
device type inheriting the nvdimm device. When the backend doesn't have
pmem="yes", the device tree property "ibm,hcall-flush-required" is set,
and the guest makes hcall H_SCM_FLUSH requesting for an explicit flush.
