Subject: [PATCH 0/5] add support for direct I/O with fscrypt using blk-crypto

This patch series adds support for direct I/O with fscrypt using
blk-crypto. It has been rebased on fscrypt/inline-encryption.

Patch 1 adds two functions to fscrypt that need to be called to determine
if direct I/O is supported for a request.

Patches 2 and 3 wire up direct-io and iomap respectively with the functions
introduced in Patch 1 and set bio crypt contexts on bios when appropriate
by calling into fscrypt.

Patches 4 and 5 allow ext4 and f2fs direct I/O to support fscrypt without
falling back to buffered I/O.

This patch series was tested by running xfstests with test_dummy_encryption
with and without the 'inlinecrypt' mount option, and there were no
meaningful regressions. The only regression was for generic/587 on ext4,
but that test isn't compatible with test_dummy_encryption in the first
place, and the test "incorrectly" passes without the 'inlinecrypt' mount
option - a patch will be sent out to exclude that test when
test_dummy_encryption is turned on with ext4 (like the other quota related
tests that use user visible quota files).
