Subject: [PATCH V4 2/8] fs/ext4: Disallow verity if inode is DAX

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

Verity and DAX are incompatible.  Changing the DAX mode due to a verity
flag change is wrong without a corresponding address_space_operations
update.

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

(Setting DAX is already disabled if Verity is set first.)

Changes from V2:
	Remove Section title 'Verity and DAX'

	remove WARN_ON_ONCE
	Add documentation for DAX/Verity exclusivity
