If only NVMe did something sane there. NVMe copied the completely idiotic idea of boot partitions from eMMC/SD, and made it even worse by first requiring bit banged register access for them, and now adding a weird admin command to read them, which is not bound to a block device. If we want to support that in NVMe we'll need code in the nvme core, but I hope we can avoid it and no one sane (that is everyone but the completely clueless BIOS people at Intel) will never use this completely fucked up boot partition concept.
