Subject: [PATCH 01/10] pagemap: Introduce ->memory_failure()

When memory-failure occurs, we call this function which is implemented
by each kind of devices.  For the fsdax case, pmem device driver
implements it.  Pmem device driver will find out the block device where
the error page locates in, and try to get the filesystem on this block
device.  And finally call filesystem handler to deal with the error.
The filesystem will try to recover the corrupted data if possiable.
