Curretly, the memory region of backed memory is directly mapped to
guest's address space, however, it is not true for nvdimm device

This patch let dimm device realize this fact and use
DIMMDeviceClass->get_memory_region method to get the mapped memory

Current code did not check the return value of get_memory_region as it
assumed the backend memory of pc-dimm is always properly initialized,
we make get_memory_region internally catch the case if something is

this should squashed into previous patch, I think

static void pc_dimm_class_init(ObjectClass *oc, void *data)

I've discovered suddenly, that

MemoryRegion *
host_memory_backend_get_memory(HostMemoryBackend *backend, Error **errp)
    return memory_region_size(&backend->mr) ? &backend->mr : NULL;

- it doesn't use errp at all. In my opinion, this should be fixed globally, by deleting useless parameter in separate patch. Or just squash your function into previous patch.

Best regards,
