I verified no obvious regression after this patch series.

Host: ThunderX2(armv8a server), kernel v5.4

qemu:v3.1, -M virt \

-object
memory-backend-file,id=mem1,share=on,mem-path=/tmp2/nvdimm.img,size=4G,align=2M \

-device nvdimm,id=nvdimm1,memdev=mem1,label-size=2M

Guest: kernel v5.7.0-rc5 with this patch series.

Tested case:

- 4K PAGESIZE, boot, mount w/ -o dax, mount w/o -o dax, basic io

- 64K PAGESIZE,boot, mount w/ -o dax, mount w/o -o dax, basic io

Not tested:

- 16K pagesize due to my hardware limiation(can't run 16K pgsz kernel)

- hot-add/remove nvdimm device from qemu due to no fully support on arm64 qemu yet

- Host nvdimm device hotplug

Hence from above result,
