nvme drives can be passed through to a kvm with vfio-pci. if there isn't a particular reason for not building the nvme driver as module, doing so can allow a drive to be bound to vfio-pci upon the early loading of it (so that no unbind/new_id sysfs procedures are required after booting)

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon
