[nvme-cli] stretch-backports of nvme-cli (1.4-1)

Package: nvme-cli
Version: 1.0-3
Severity: wishlist

[ CC me I am not subscribed to debian-backports@lists.debian.org ]

Dear Maintainer,

I have seen there is jessie-backports of nvme-cli, so I would like to
see a stretch-backports of v1.4.
In [1] I have nor seen such a package.

Here I use a Lenovo ThinkPad T470 with a LENSE20512GMSP 512GiB
NVMe-SSD on Debian/stretch AMD64.
I hope having the latest nvme-cli is good for this new technology.

Following the SimpleBackportCreation wiki, I was able to successfully
built and installed a (1.4-1~bpo9+1) version myself.

Today, I also installed latest Debian-kernel 4.13.0-1-amd64
(4.13.13-1) from buildd-unstable.
All this preps before doing a firmware-upgrade for my NVMe-SSD.

Not sure, how I can help and/or you need further informations.
Thanks for any suggestions.
