Actually I like to call function 0. Its an excellent test when
modifying the code path as its a no side effects function whose output
is known in advance and instantly recognizable. I also use it when
testing new firmware.

What is the downside to allowing it? What bad things happen?

Also, I do have to ask why you allow function zero for NVDIMM_FAMILY_MSFT?
