  Description     : Provides configuration and device management
  services for CAPI flash accelerators.

CAPI can be thought of as a special tunneling protocol through PCIe that
allow PCIe adapters to look like special purpose co-processors which can
read or write an application's memory and generate page faults. 
The cxlflash driver is responsible for the initialization of the Coherent
Accelerator (CXL) Flash Adapter, setting up the special path for user
space access, and performing error recovery.
