[GIT PULL] libnvdimm fixes for 4.9-rc7

From: Williams, Dan J
Date: Sat Nov 26 2016 - 12:27:34 EST

Hi Linus, please pull from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/nvdimm/nvdimm libnvdimm-fixes

...to receive:

+ACo- Fix a crash that occurs at driver initialization if the memory region
is already busy (request+AF8-mem+AF8-region() fails).

+ACo- Fix a vma validation check that mistakenly allows a private device-
dax mapping to be established. +AKA-Device-dax explicitly forbids private
mappings so it can guarantee a given fault granularity and backing
memory type.

Both of these fixes have soaked in -next and are tagged for -stable.
