There are scenarios when a dimm-provider need to allocate some
per-dimm data that can be quickly retrieved. This data can be used to
cache data that spans multiple 'struct ndctl_cmd' submissions.

Unfortunately currently in libnvdimm there is no easy way to implement
this. Even if this data is some how stored in some field of 'struct
ndctl_dimm', managing its lifetime is a challenge.

To solve this problem, the patch proposes a new member 'struct
ndctl_dimm.dimm_user_data' to store per-dimm data interpretation of
which is specific to a dimm-provider. Also two new dimm-ops namely
dimm_init() & dimm_uninit() are introduced that can be used to manage
the lifetime of this per-dimm data.

int (*dimm_init)(struct ndctl_dimm *):

This callback will be called just after dimm-probe inside add_dimm()
is completed. Dimm-providers should use this callback to allocate
per-dimm data and assign it to 'struct ndctl_dimm.dimm_user_data'
member. In case this function returns an error, dimm initialization is
halted and errors out.

void (*dimm_uninit)(struct ndctl_dimm *):

This callback will be called during free_dimm() and is only called if
previous call to 'dimm_ops->dimm_init()' had reported no
error. Dimm-providers should use this callback to unallocate and
cleanup 'dimm_user_data'.
