Could you do something like:

 #ifdef CONFIG_FS_DAX
 struct page *read_dax_sector(struct block_device *bdev, sector_t n);
+unsigned long dax_get_unmapped_area(struct file *filp, unsigned long addr,
+               unsigned long len, unsigned long pgoff, unsigned long flags);
 #else
 static inline struct page *read_dax_sector(struct block_device *bdev,
                 sector_t n)
 {
         return ERR_PTR(-ENXIO);
 }
+#define dax_get_unmapped_area	NULL
 #endif

in patch 1/5.  Then there's no need for the ifdefs in each filesystem.
