Subject: [PATCH V4 05/13] fs/xfs: Isolate the physical DAX flag from enabled

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

xfs_ioctl_setattr_dax_invalidate() currently checks if the DAX flag is
changing as a quick check.

But the implementation mixes the physical (XFS_DIFLAG2_DAX) and
the enabled (S_DAX) DAX flags.

Remove the use of the enabled flag when determining if a change of the
physical flag is required.

Furthermore, we want the physical flag, XFS_DIFLAG2_DAX, to be changed
regardless of if the underlying storage can support DAX or not.

The enabled flag, IS_DAX(), will be set later IFF the inode supports
dax in a follow on patch.
