Subject: [PATCH V4 4/8] fs/ext4: Update ext4_should_use_dax()

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

S_DAX should only be enabled when the underlying block device supports
dax.

Cache the underlying support for DAX in the super block and modify
ext4_should_use_dax() to check for device support prior to the over
riding mount option.

While we are at it change the function to ext4_should_enable_dax() as
this better reflects the ask as well as matches xfs.

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

---
Changes from V3:
	Add a sb DAX supported flag for performance

Changes from RFC
	Change function name to 'should enable'
	Clean up bool conversion
	Reorder this for better bisect-ability
