All this ad hoc IS_DAX conditional logic is getting pretty nasty.

xfs_file_mmap(
....
{
	struct inode	*inode = file_inode(filp);

	if (vma->vm_flags & VM_SYNC) {
		if (!IS_DAX(inode))
			return -EOPNOTSUPP;
		if (!dax_synchronous(xfs_find_daxdev_for_inode(inode))
			return -EOPNOTSUPP;
	}

	file_accessed(filp);
	vma->vm_ops = &xfs_file_vm_ops;
	if (IS_DAX(inode))
		vma->vm_flags |= VM_HUGEPAGE;
	return 0;
}


Even better, factor out all the "MAP_SYNC supported" checks into a
helper so that the filesystem code just doesn't have to care about
the details of checking for DAX+MAP_SYNC support....

Cheers,

Dave.
