== SRU Justification ==
Dell reports that every time they run a nvme format on an Intel 
NVMe drive (whether specifying the secure/crypto erase options or not), the 
format apparently works (drive is wiped clean). The drive's admin queue 
(queue 0) times out, making the nvme device driver flag an error and reset the controller.

This bug is fixed by commit 62843c2e4226, which is in mainline as of

== Fix ==
62843c2e4226 ("nvme: Use admin command effects for admin commands")

== Regression Potential ==
Low.  Limited to nvme driver.

== Test Case ==
A test kernel was built with this patch and tested by the original bug reporter.
The bug reporter states the test kernel resolved the bug.
