This is an attempt to document the nfit sysfs interface. The
descriptions have been collected from git commit logs and the ACPI
specification 6.2. There are still two undocumented attributes-
range_index and ecc_unit_size, for which I couldn't collect complete
information.

+
+               The attribute is a translation of the 'NVDIMM State Flags' field
+               in section 5.2.25.3 'NVDIMM Region Mapping' Structure of the
+               ACPI specification 6.2.
+
+               The health states are "save_fail", "restore_fail", "flush_fail",

+Description:
+               (RO) Identifiers for the programming interface. Starting with
+               ACPI 6.1 an NFIT table reports multiple 'NVDIMM Control Region
+               Structure' instances per-dimm, one for each supported format
+               interface. That code is represented in the sysfs as follows:
+               nmemX/nfit/formats, nmemX/nfit/format, nmemX/nfit/format1,
+               nmemX/nfit/format2 ... nmemX/nfit/formatN, where format2 -
+               formatN are theoretical as there are no known DIMMs with support
+               for more than two interface formats. The 'formats' attribute
+               displays the number of supported interfaces.
+
+               This layout is compatible with existing libndctl binaries that
+               only expect one code per-dimm as they will ignore
+               nmemX/nfit/formats and nmemX/nfit/formatN.

+
+               '0': Switch to the default mode where an exception will only
+               insert the address of the memory error into the poison and
+               badblocks lists.
+               '1': Enable a full scrub to happen if an exception for a memory
+               error is received.
