Hi Jens,

A bunch of patches for 4.10 have been prepared.

Javier has been busy eliminating abstractions in the LightNVM
interface. Mainly killing generic nvm_block and nvm_lun, which
simplifies the locking mechanism within targets. He also added a couple
of new hints and error codes that are useful for the hardware.

I have a small fix to fix a wrong free, and also a larger patch that
attaches the sysfs entries added in 4.9 to attach to the native nvme

With these patches, the pblk target is ready to be upstreamed. If
nothing comes along to delay it, we will push it in the next cycle.

Please pick up.

Applied for 4.10, thanks.
