Hi Jens,

This is the patches targeted for -rc2 of 4.4.

Ten of the patches fix bugs and small specification updates. While the
last two are larger patches. They are necessary because of specification
changes. The updates are applied now before it is set in stone for 4.4
(or at least makes it a lot harder to change)

Patch 1: Adds the linux-block list to the maintainers list for LightNVM.
Patch 2: Fixes a ushort bug reported by Geert.
Patch 3: Updates the implementation to support the new bad block table
Patch 4-9: Small fixes.
Patch 10: The specification had support for both linear and device
specific addressing. It was replaced by ppa format, that
defines the device ppa format used by the specific device.
This patch adds the support and removes the previous two
Patch 11-12: Two small cleanups to the lightnvm nvme integration.
Caused by specification changes.

Patches 3 to 12 is the first time they are posted to the list for

Will you pick up the patches when convenient (and reviewed):

git@xxxxxxxxxx:OpenChannelSSD/linux.git for-jens

I'll update the for-jens branch and post a separate patch if any
fixes is applied to the patches.

Applied, thanks.
