Subject: [PATCH 5/5] fs/xfs: Allow toggle of physical DAX flag

From: Ira Weiny <ira.weiny@...el.com>

Switching between DAX and non-DAX on a file is racy with respect to data
operations.  However, if no data is involved the flag is safe to switch.

Allow toggling the physical flag if a file is empty.  The file length
check is not racy with respect to other operations as it is performed
under XFS_MMAPLOCK_EXCL and XFS_IOLOCK_EXCL locks.
