WTF is a NVMe host supposed to mean for a PCIe device. NVMe defines
the host as following:

"1.6.16 host

An entity that interfaces to an NVM subsystem through one or more
controllers and submits commands to Submission Queues and retrieves
command completions from Completion Queues."

in other words - the Linux kernel is the NVMe host. You need to
describe this magic broken piece of crap a lot better than that.
