Haiku gets NVMe driver

Due to the awesome work by long-time developer waddlesplash, nightly images after hrev53079 have read/write NVMe support built-in.
 […]

These devices now show up in /dev/disk/nvme/ and are fully useable by Haiku.

I’ve personally tested my Samsung 950 Pro and seen raw read speeds up to 1.4GiB/s.

I always enjoy checking the progress of other alternative OSes as an off topic thing.

Would be a nice item, but certainly we need wifi, USB-3, and our updated browser before we spend much on NVME drives.   I'm still contributing to updates by BWW and Arca.   Still like my OS/2 > eCS > Arca much better than Win or Apple.
Keep up the good work Martin.
