Subject: [PATCH v4 7/8] ext4: reorder map.m_flags checks in ext4_set_iomap()

For iomap direct IO write code path changes, we need to accommodate
for the case where the block mapping flags passed to ext4_map_blocks()
will result in m_flags having both EXT4_MAP_MAPPED and
EXT4_MAP_UNWRITTEN bits set. In order for the allocated unwritten
extents to be converted properly in the end_io handler, iomap->type
must be set to IOMAP_UNWRITTEN, so we need to reshuffle the
conditional statement in order to achieve this.

This change is a no-op for DAX code path as the block mapping flag
passed to ext4_map_blocks() when IS_DAX(inode) never results in
EXT4_MAP_MAPPED and EXT4_MAP_UNWRITTEN being set at once.
