Me neither, Hence the RFC...

Well, it will fail the nvme connect-all command, which would appear
in the journal and disable the service, the user is expected to
add discovery.conf and re-enable the service at that point...

I think James was pushing udev stuff for auto connection as FC
discovery is in-band, so not sure how this will apply to FC...
