Linda Knippers noticed that commit bbab37ddc20b (block: Add support
for DAX reads/writes to block devices) caused a regression in mkfs.xfs.
Further investigation also uncovered issues related to misaligned
partitions. This patch set addresses the two issues.
[PATCH 1/2] dax: fix O_DIRECT I/O to the last block of a blockdev
[PATCH 2/2] blockdev: don't set S_DAX for misaligned partitions
Should these be "Cc: <stable(a)vger.kernel.org>" given the regression
fix is applicable back to 4.0?
