Subject: [PATCH RFC PKS/PMEM 56/58] dax: Stray access protection for dax_direct_access()

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

dax_direct_access() is a special case of accessing pmem via a page
offset and without a struct page.

Because the dax driver is well aware of the special protections it has
mapped memory with, call dev_access_[en|dis]able() directly instead of
the unnecessary overhead of trying to get a page to kmap.

Similar to kmap, we leverage existing functions, dax_read_[un]lock(),
because they are already required to surround the use of the memory
returned from dax_direct_access().
