Hello stable team,
These patches have been shipping in mainline since v5.7-rc1 with no
reported issues. They address long standing problems in libnvdimm's
handling of namespace provisioning relative to alignment constraints
including crashes trying to even load the driver on some PowerPC
I did fold one build fix  into "libnvdimm/region: Introduce an 'align'
attribute" so as to not convey the bisection breakage to -stable.
Please consider them for v5.4-stable. They do pass the latest
version of the ndctl unit tests.
What about 5.6.y? Any user upgrading from 5.4-stable to 5.6-stable
would hit a regression, right?
So can we get a series backported to 5.6.y as well? I need that before
I can take this series.
