I agree, we should get that moving, and make a proper abstraction for
it. Also with respect to how an SMR interface in general is integrated
into NVMe.

The patch is necessary due to the revalidate event for retrieving the
lba format from the nvme drive. It might not be available the first time
around, and we have to hook in when the drive is revalidated the second
time.
