Description

Send a customized NVMe Admin command request message and get the corresponding response message.

This interface supports no data, host to controller and controller to host but it doesn't support bidirectional data transfer. Also this interface only supports data transfer size range [0, 4096] (bytes) so the & data_len parameter must be less than 4097.

Return

The nvme command status if a response was received (see enum nvme_status_field) or -1 with errno set otherwise.
