A single sentence to introduce:

24 files changed, 3029 insertions(+), 97 deletions(-)

...is inadequate. What are OpenCAPI Persistent Memory devices? How do
they compare, in terms relevant to libnvdimm, to other persistent
memory devices? What challenges do they pose to the existing enabling?
What is the overall approach taken with this 27 patch break down? What
are the changes since v2, v1? If you incorporated someone's review
feedback note it in the cover letter changelog, if you didn't
incorporate someone's feedback note that too with an explanation.

In short, provide a bridge document for someone familiar with the
upstream infrastructure, but not necessarily steeped in powernv /
OpenCAPI platform details, to get started with this code.

For now, no need to resend the whole series, just reply to this
message with a fleshed out cover letter and then incorporate it going
forward for v4+.
