    libnvdimm, dax: introduce device-dax infrastructure · cd03412a
    Dan Williams authored
    Device DAX is the device-centric analogue of Filesystem DAX
    (CONFIG_FS_DAX).  It allows persistent memory ranges to be allocated and
    mapped without need of an intervening file system.  This initial
    infrastructure arranges for a libnvdimm pfn-device to be represented as
    a different device-type so that it can be attached to a driver other
    than the pmem driver.
