The original concern was that dax-reflink could not be implemented
without ABI regressions. As far as I can see that concern has been put
to rest by the proposed patches. Am I wrong? So, if we're committed to
not breaking past promises I think this change can be made
out-of-order from when the reflink support patches land.

...but I'm also fine with waiting for the final reflink merge.
