I had some larger reworks of dax pending in -next until I got a late
report of a UML build error. Investigating that made me realize that I
missed the device-mapper dax support in those dax reworks, I started
pulling in late changes. However, this wider rework is to feel too
late for 4.17...

Thanks for the fix, I'll get it folded in and reevaluate what bits are
still viable / tested enough to push at this stage.
