Merge branch 'libnvdimm-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/nvdimm/nvdimm
Pull libnvcimm fix from Dan Williams: "One straggling fix for NVDIMM support. The KVM/QEMU enabling for NVDIMMs has recently reached the point where it is able to accept some ACPI _DSM requests from a guest VM. However they immediately found that the 4.5-rc kernel is unusable because the kernel's 'nfit' driver fails to load upon seeing a valid "not supported" response from the virtual BIOS for an address range scrub command. It is not mandatory that a platform implement address range scrubbing, so this fix from Vishal properly treats the 'not supported' response as 'skip scrubbing and continue loading the driver'" * 'libnvdimm-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/nvdimm/nvdimm: nfit: Continue init even if ARS commands are unimplemented
