Subject: [PATCH] ndctl/namespace: Handle 'create-namespace' in label-less mode

Patch-mainline: v66
Git-commit: 7966c92c9da72b0640eec1341bdee959ce746957

A common confusion with ndctl is that 'create-namespace' does not work
in the label-less case. In the label-less case there is no capacity to
allocate as the size if already hard-coded by the region boundary.

However, users typically do something like the following in the
label-less case:

    # ndctl list
    {
      "dev":"namespace1.0",
      "mode":"raw",
      "size":"127.00 GiB (136.37 GB)",
      "sector_size":512,
      "blockdev":"pmem1"
    }

    # ndctl destroy-namespace namespace1.0 -f
    destroyed 1 namespace

    # ndctl create-namespace
    failed to create namespace: Resource temporarily unavailable

In other words they destroy the raw mode namespace that they don't want,
and seek to create a new default configuration namespace. Since there is
no "available_capacity" in the label-less case the 'create' attempt
fails.

Fix this by recognizing that the user wants a default sized namespace
and just reconfigure the raw namespace.
