My first patches move xfs_filemap_pfn_mkwrite to use __xfs_filemap_fault,
but that didn't work. Wish I'd remember why, though.
Maybe due to the additional check on IS_DAX(inode) in __xfs_filemap_fault()
which could do the wrong thing if per-inode DAX flag is switched? Because
otherwise __xfs_filemap_fault(vmf, PE_SIZE_PTE, true) does exactly the same
thing as xfs_filemap_pfn_mkwrite() did.
If we do care about per-inode DAX flag switching, I can just fixup
xfs_filemap_pfn_mkwrite() but my understanding was that we ditched the idea
at least until someone comes up with a reliable way to implement that...
