Ok.

...although, I have a question about this "100,000 devices" you quote.
What's not clear to me is how many platforms are shipping with
type-12. Certainly there are very many NVDIMMs on the market, but
which off-the-shelf systems can one obtain that include type-12
support? Not that it would change the disposition of this patch, if
platforms are in the field they're "in the field!", just clarifying
that "100,000 devices" is NVDIMMs not type-12 platforms, right?
