This is a new protocol driver that exclusively opens a host NVMe

The driver also integrates with the polling mechanism of iothread.

Sorry for not noticing sooner, but

This is wrong. Drivers should only ever return BDRV_BLOCK_DATA (which
io.c then _adds_ BDRV_BLOCK_ALLOCATED to, as needed). I'll fix it up as
part of my byte-based block status series (v8 coming up soon).
