I was thinking about try to set 1 I/O queue in driver to try to probe
If it works, at least system can bootup to debug instead of just remove
NVME device and kernel boot hang at loading rootfs.
If you still concern this 1 I/O queue I can still set it as
*count = 0;
At least we try all count, NVME device still failed to respond.
