This patchset changes the representation in the NVDIMM DAX driver for a hole
in a file. It was previously represented by DAX_ZERO_PAGE, which was set as
1UL << 2.
Patch 1 migrates to XArray's XA_ZERO_ENTRY and registers the new
definition for XA_ZERO_PMD_ENTRY, which is used in dax_pmd_load_hole() to
represent whether a file is a PMD entry or a zero entry. Patch 2 shifts
the bit for DAX_EMPTY down from 1UL << 3 to 1UL << 2, as DAX_ZERO_ENTRY no
longer exists. Patch 3 corrects the terminology used above the definitions
for the DAX bits.
I tested this under xfstests with XFS+DAX for a 20 GiB NVDIMM and did not
observe any regressions.
