nvdimm: Clarify comment in sizeof_namespace_index
When working on the label code I found it rather confusing to see several spots that reference a minimum label size of 256 while working with labels that are 128 bytes in size. This patch is meant to provide a clarification on one of the comments that was at the heart of the issue. Specifically for version 1.2 and later of the namespace specification the minimum label size is 256, prior to that the minimum label size was 128. So we should state that as such to avoid confusion.
