Subject: [PATCH v2 1/2] dax: dax_pfn_mkwrite() truncate race check

Update dax_pfn_mkwrite() so that it validates i_size before returning.
This is necessary to ensure that the page fault has not raced with truncate
and is now pointing to a region beyond the end of the current file.

This change is based on a similar outstanding patch for XFS from Dave
Chinner entitled "xfs: add ->pfn_mkwrite support for DAX".
