Raw admin transfer interface.

Performs an arbitrary NVMe Admin command, using the provided request data, in admin_req. The size of the request data *payload* is specified in req_data_size - this does not include the standard header length (so a header-only request would have a size of 0).
On success, response data is stored in admin_resp, which has an optional appended payload buffer of resp_data_size bytes. The actual payload transferred will be stored in resp_data_size. These sizes do not include the Admin request header, so 0 represents no payload.
As with all Admin commands, we can request partial data from the Admin Response payload, offset by resp_data_offset.
See: struct nvme_mi_admin_req_hdr and struct nvme_mi_admin_resp_hdr.
The nvme command status if a response was received (see enum nvme_status_field) or -1 with errno set otherwise..
