Subject[GIT PULL] libnvdimm fixes for 4.20-rc3
Hi Linus, please pull from:

git:// tags/libnvdimm-fixes-4.20-rc3 receive a small batch of fixes for v4.20-rc3.

These have soaked in -next for a few releases. The overflow
continuation fix addresses something that has been broken for several
releases. Arguably it could wait even longer, but it's a one line fix
and this finishes the last of the known address range scrub bug
reports. The revert addresses a lockdep regression. The unit tests are
not critical to fix, but no reason to hold this fix back.


The following changes since commit 651022382c7f8da46cb4872a545ee1da6d097d2a:

Linux 4.20-rc1 (2018-11-04 15:37:52 -0800)

Revert "acpi, nfit: Further restrict userspace ARS start requests" (2018-11-10 09:54:28 -0800)

libnvdimm 4.20-rc3

- Address Range Scrub overflow continuation handling has been broken
since it was initially merged. It was only recently that error injection
and platform-BIOS support enabled this corner case to be exercised.

- The recent attempt to provide more isolation for the kernel Address
Range Scrub state machine from userapace initiated sessions triggers a
lockdep report. Revert and try again at the next merge window.

- Fix a kasan reported buffer overflow in libnvdimm unit test
infrastrucutre (nfit_test)
