Yay! Sorry if I was unclear, I wasn't trying to say that we had to change all
of ext2 over to using struct iomap. If we can (and apparently we can) just
switch over the DAX interfaces, that's good enough to me. I understand that
this will mean that we may have overlapping DAX paths for a while (an iomap
version and a buffer_head version). I just wanted to figure out whether this
overlap would need to be permanent - sounds like not, which is ideal.
