As mentioned before please either define this symbol in each
arch Kconfig, or just ensure every architecture proides a stub.

But more importantly it doesn't seem like you're actually using
ioremap_cache anywhere. Allowing a cached ioremap would be a very
worthwile addition to the pmem drivers once we have the proper
memcpy functions making it safe, and is one of the high priority
todo items for the pmem driver.

Please just call all the symbolc and file names nvdimm instead of nfit
or nd to make eryones life simpler for the generic code. Just use the
EFI/ACPI terminology in those parts that actually parse those tables.
