Subject: [PATCH v2 1/6] ext4: introduce direct IO read path using iomap
 infrastructure

This patch introduces a new direct IO read path that makes use of the
iomap infrastructure.

The new function ext4_dio_read_iter() is responsible for calling into
the iomap infrastructure via iomap_dio_rw(). If the inode in question
does not pass preliminary checks in ext4_dio_checks(), then we simply
fallback to buffered IO and take that path to fulfil the request. It's
imperative that we drop the IOCB_DIRECT flag from iocb->ki_flags in
order to prevent generic_file_read_iter() from trying to take the
direct IO code path again.
