On the libnvdimm-pending branch, I get this:

root@decui-gen2-u1904:~/nvdimm# ndctl list
root@decui-gen2-u1904:~/nvdimm# ndctl list --idle
[
{
"dev":"namespace1.0",
"mode":"raw",
"size":0,
"uuid":"00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000",
"state":"disabled"
},
{
"dev":"namespace0.0",
"mode":"raw",
"size":0,
"uuid":"00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000",
"state":"disabled"
}
]

With the patch that clears the LOCAL label (BTW, the initial value of flags is 0x3,
meaning a read-only local label) :
@@ -2496,6 +2500,7 @@ static int init_active_labels(struct nd_region *nd_region)
if (!label_ent)
break;
label = nd_label_active(ndd, j);
+ label->flags &= ~NSLABEL_FLAG_LOCAL;
label_ent->label = label;

I get this:

root@decui-gen2-u1904:~/nvdimm# ndctl list
root@decui-gen2-u1904:~/nvdimm# ndctl list --idle
[
{
"dev":"namespace1.0",
"mode":"raw",
"size":0,
"uuid":"c258aaab-f72b-e546-bfa5-be5e07761dbc",
"state":"disabled",
"name":"Microsoft Hyper-V NVDIMM 1 Label"
},
{
"dev":"namespace0.0",
"mode":"raw",
"size":0,
"uuid":"9f0497a7-4453-7c40-ad35-21a791e00345",
"state":"disabled",
"name":"Microsoft Hyper-V NVDIMM 0 Label"
}
]
The "size" and "mode" still don't look right, but the improvement is that
now I can see a good descriptive "name", which I suppose is retrieved
from Hyper-V.

With Ubuntu 19.04 (4.18.0-11-generic), I get this:
(Note: the "mode" and "size" are correct. The "uuid" is different from
the above "9f0497a7-4453-7c40-ad35-21a791e00345" -- this is weird.)

root@decui-gen2-u1904:~# ndctl list
[
{
"dev":"namespace1.0",
"mode":"raw",
"size":137438953472,
"blockdev":"pmem1"
},
{
"dev":"namespace0.0",
"mode":"fsdax",
"map":"dev",
"size":33820770304,
"uuid":"35018886-397e-4fe7-a348-0a4d16eec44d",
"blockdev":"pmem0"
}
]
I'm trying to find out the correct solution. I apprecite your insights!

Thanks,
