commit b93dfa6bda4d4e88e5386490f2b277a26958f9d3 upstream.

Fix the NFIT parsing code to treat a 0 index in a SPA Range Structure as
a special case and not match Region Mapping Structures that use 0 to
indicate that they are not mapped. Without this fix some platform BIOS
descriptions of "virtual disk" ranges do not result in the pmem driver
attaching to the range.

In addition to typical persistent memory ranges, the ACPI NFIT may also
convey "virtual" ranges. These ranges are indicated by a UUID in the SPA
critical difference between virtual ranges and UUID_PERSISTENT_MEMORY,
is that virtual do not support associations with Region Mapping
Structures. For this reason the "index" value of virtual SPA Range
Structures is allowed to be 0. If a platform BIOS decides to represent
NVDIMMs with disconnected "Region Mapping Structures" (range-index ==
0), the kernel may falsely associate them with standalone ranges where
the "SPA Range Structure Index" is also zero. When this happens the
driver may falsely require labels where "virtual disks" are expected to
be label-less. I.e. "label-less" is where the namespace-range ==
region-range and the pmem driver attaches with no user action to create
a namespace.
