Subject[GIT PULL 00/19] LightNVM patches for 4.12.
Hi Jens,

With this merge window, we like to push pblk upstream. It is a new
host-side translation layer that implements support for exposing
Open-Channel SSDs as block devices.

We have described pblk in the LightNVM paper "LightNVM: The Linux
Open-Channel SSD Subsystem" that was accepted at FAST 2017. The paper
defines open-channel SSDs, the subsystem, pblk and has an evaluation as
well. Over the past couple of kernel versions we have shipped the
support patches for pblk, and we are now comfortable pushing the core of
pblk upstream.

The core contains the logic to control data placement and I/O scheduling
on open-channel SSDs. Including implementation of translation table
management, GC, recovery, rate-limiting, and similar components. It
assumes that the SSD is media-agnostic, and runs on both 1.2 and 2.0 of
the Open-Channel SSD specification without modifications.

I want to point out two neat features of pblk. First, pblk can be
instantiated multiple times on the same SSD, enabling I/O isolation
between tenants, and makes it able to fulfill strict QoS requirements.
We showed results from this at the NVMW '17 workshop this year, while
presenting the "Multi-Tenant I/O Isolation with Open-Channel SSDs" talk.
Second, now that a full host-side translation layer is implemented, one
can begin to optimize its data placement and I/O scheduling algorithms
to match user workloads. We have shown a couple of the benefits in the
LightNVM paper, and we know of a couple of companies and universities
that have begun making new algorithms.

In detail, this pull request contains:

- The new host-side FTL pblk from Javier, and other contributors.

- Add support to the "create" ioctl to force a target to be
re-initialized at using "factory" flag from Javier.

- Fix various errors in LightNVM core from Javier and me.

- An optimization from Neil Brown to skip error checking on mempool
allocations that can sleep.

- A buffer overflow fix in nvme_nvm_identify from Scott Bauer.

- Fix for bad block discovery handle error handling from Christophe

- Fixes from Dan Carpenter to pblk after it went into linux-next.
