Subject: [PATCH 3/9] fs/ext4: Disallow encryption if inode is DAX

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

Encryption and DAX are incompatible.  Changing the DAX mode due to a
change in Encryption mode is wrong without a corresponding
address_space_operations update.

Make the 2 options mutually exclusive by returning an error if DAX was
set first.

Furthermore, clarify the documentation of the exclusivity and how that
will work.

Signed-off-by: Ira Weiny <ira.weiny@...el.com>

Changes:
	remove WARN_ON_ONCE
	Add documentation to the encrypt doc WRT DAX
