Subject: [fstests PATCH v2 0/2] Add test for DAX+ext4+DMA race

As of kernel version 4.18-rc4, Linux has an issue with ext4+DAX where DMA
and direct I/O operations aren't synchronized with respect to operations
which can change the block mappings of an inode.  This can potentially
lead to data corruption, and is fixed in the following kernel series:

These patches add a regression test for that series.


Changes since v1:
 * Added copyright and license information to files I've previously
   authored in src/.

 * Added copyright, license information and info about the test's
   purpose to src/t_mmap_collision.c. (Dave)

 * Added comments to tests/generic/999 explaining why we unset the
   mount flags for SCRATCH_MNT. (Dave)

 * Subtests in src/t_mmap_collision.c are now conditional based on the
   existence of the necessary FALLOC_FL_* flags. (Eryu)

 * Added the test to the punch, collapse and zero groups. (Eryu)

  src/: add license and copyright info to files
  generic/999: test DAX DMA vs truncate/hole-punch
