I made v2 patch. Please check it.

Change log
v2 :  - use json_object_new_int() for each data.
        - check MAX value for each data.
        - phys_id becomes unsigned short from signed short.

   The current "id" data of dimm (ndctl list -D) shows the information
   of DIMM module vendor or serial number.  However, I think it is not enough. 
   If a NVDIMM becomes broken, users need to know its physical place
   rather than vendor or serial number to replace the NVDIMM.

   There are 2 candidate of such information. 
     a) NFIT Device Handle (_ADR of the NVDIMM device)
        This date includes node controller id and socket id.
     b) NVDIMM Physical ID (Handle for the SMBIOS Memory Device (Type 17)).
        The dmidecode can show this handle with more information like "Locator"
        So, user can find the location of NVDIMM.

   At first, I think _ADR is enough information. 

   However, when I talked with our firmware team about this requirement, 
   they said it may not be good data, because the node contoller ID is not
   stable on our server due to "partitioning" feature.
   (Our server can have plural partition on one box, and may have plural
    node 0.)

   So, I make the ndctl shows not only NFIT Device Handle but also
   NVDIMM Physical ID. Then, user can find the location with dmidecode.
