I tried it out on xfs and I succeeded. There are the prompting messages:

# mount -o dax /dev/pmem0 /mnt/mem
The mount command doesn't return any message, and I can successfully read or
write files in /mnt/mem.
xfs will silently disable dax when the fs block size is too small,
i.e. your mmap() operations are backed by page cache in this case.
Currently the only indication of whether a mapping is DAX backed or
not is the presence of the VM_MIXEDMAP flag ("mm" in the VmFlags field
