Subject: [PATCH V5 02/12] fs: Remove unneeded IS_DAX() check

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

Remove the check because DAX now has it's own read/write methods and
file systems which support DAX check IS_DAX() prior to IOCB_DIRECT on
their own.  Therefore, it does not matter if the file state is DAX when
the iocb flags are created.
