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.
