    Blocking RAW commands by default will prevent vendors from developing user space tools that utilize vendor specific commands. Vendors of CXL.mem devices should take ownership of ensuring any vendor defined commands that could cause user data to be exposed or corrupted are disabled at the device level for shipping configurations.
