Just the prep/unprep, or other pieces as well?

I like that struct request_queue has a ref to struct nvm_dev, and the
variables in request and bio to get to the struct is in the block layer.

In the future, applications can have an API to get/put flash block
directly. (using the blk_nvm_[get/put]_blk interface).
