Subject: [PATCH 4.13 46/52] xfs: disable per-inode DAX flag

4.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Christoph Hellwig <hch@....de>

commit 742d84290739ae908f1b61b7d17ea382c8c0073a upstream.

Currently flag switching can be used to easily crash the kernel.  Disable
the per-inode DAX flag until that is sorted out.
