This patch set contains various code improvements and cleanups that
were inspired by Al Viro upon reviewing the cxlflash driver. The core
improvement is that the driver will no longer cache the adapter file
descriptor associated with a context. This results in a user API change
that is documented alongside the modifications.

The series is based upon 4.8-rc1, intended for 4.9, and is bisectable.

Matthew R. Ochs (6):
  cxlflash: Avoid mutex when destroying context
  cxlflash: Cache owning adapter within context
  cxlflash: Add kref to context
  cxlflash: Transition to application close model
  cxlflash: Remove adapter file descriptor cache
  cxlflash: Update documentation
