Subject[GIT PULL] pstore updates for v5.8-rc1
Hi Linus,

Please pull these pstore updates for v5.8-rc1. This is a pretty big set
of changes (relative to past pstore pulls), but they've lived in -next
for a while. The biggest change here is the ability to support a block
device as a pstore backend, which has been desired for a while. A lot of
additional fixes and refactorings are also included, mostly in support
of the new features.



The following changes since commit 8f3d9f354286745c751374f5f1fcafee6b3f3136:

Linux 5.7-rc1 (2020-04-12 12:35:55 -0700)
