Hi Niklas,

Yes, the out_put_disk label was introduced at the same time as the
LightNVM entry point. We can do a better job at separating the cleanup
functions, but as far as I can see ns->disk is not used in the LightNVM
initialization, so delaying the initialization should be ok. Part of
this should be also changing the out_put_disk to put_disk(disk).

Note that initializing other namespace types here do not require
ns->disk either, so delaying initialization should be ok. We have been
running with this patch locally for some time.

This said, this is an alternative as your fix works.

Javier
