Subject: [PATCH v2 00/10] fsdax,xfs: Add reflink&dedupe support for fsdax

This patchset is attempt to add CoW support for fsdax, and take XFS,
which has both reflink and fsdax feature, as an example.

Changes from V1:
 - Factor some helper functions to simplify dax fault code
 - Introduce iomap_apply2() for dax_dedupe_file_range_compare()
 - Fix mistakes and other problems
 - Rebased on v5.11

One of the key mechanism need to be implemented in fsdax is CoW.  Copy
the data from srcmap before we actually write data to the destance
iomap.  And we just copy range in which data won't be changed.

Another mechanism is range comparison.  In page cache case, readpage()
is used to load data on disk to page cache in order to be able to
compare data.  In fsdax case, readpage() does not work.  So, we need
another compare data with direct access support.

With the two mechanism implemented in fsdax, we are able to make reflink
and fsdax work together in XFS.

Some of the patches are picked up from Goldwyn's patchset.  I made some
changes to adapt to this patchset.

(Rebased on v5.11)

Shiyang Ruan (10):
  fsdax: Factor helpers to simplify dax fault code
  fsdax: Factor helper: dax_fault_actor()
  fsdax: Output address in dax_iomap_pfn() and rename it
  fsdax: Introduce dax_iomap_cow_copy()
  fsdax: Replace mmap entry in case of CoW
  fsdax: Add dax_iomap_cow_copy() for dax_iomap_zero
  iomap: Introduce iomap_apply2() for operations on two files
  fsdax: Dedup file range to use a compare function
  fs/xfs: Handle CoW for fsdax write() path
  fs/xfs: Add dedupe support for fsdax
