Subject[PATCH v10 12/12] drivers/block/pmem: Map NVDIMM with ioremap_wt()
Date
The pmem driver maps NVDIMM with ioremap_nocache() as we cannot
write back the contents of the CPU caches in case of a crash.

This patch changes to use ioremap_wt(), which provides uncached
writes but cached reads, for improving read performance.
