In case the device doesn't support namespace atomic boundary size (i.e. NABSPF 
is zero) then while merging atomic block-IO we should allow merge.
For example, while front/back merging the atomic block IO, we check whether 
boundary is defined or not. In case if boundary is not-defined (i.e. it's zero) 
then we simply reject merging ateempt (as implemented in 

I am quoting this from NVMe spec (Command Set Specification, revision 1.0a, 
Section : "To ensure backwards compatibility, the values reported for 
AWUN, AWUPF, and ACWU shall be set such that they  are  supported  even  if  a  
write  crosses  an  atomic  boundary.  If  a  controller  does  not  guarantee 
atomicity across atomic boundaries, the controller shall set AWUN, AWUPF, and 
ACWU to 0h (1 LBA)."
