Subject: [PATCH v4 1/2] dax: dax_layout_busy_page() warn on !exceptional

Inodes using DAX should only ever have exceptional entries in their page
caches.  Make this clear by warning if the iteration in
dax_layout_busy_page() ever sees a non-exceptional entry, and by adding a
comment for the pagevec_release() call which only deals with struct page
pointers.
