SubjectRE: [RFC PATCH] nvme: avoid race-conditions when enabling devices
Hi Marta,

I could not get time to work on this.
The present patch works for our platforms. so we continue with that.
I will update new changes little later.
If you have time, please try the same patch and let us know if any issue you
see.

Regards,
Srinath.
