Subject[PATCH v2 2/3] ext4, dax: set ext4_dax_aops for dax files
Sync syscall to DAX file needs to flush processor cache, but it
currently does not flush to existing DAX files. This is because
'ext4_da_aops' is set to address_space_operations of existing DAX
files, instead of 'ext4_dax_aops', since S_DAX flag is set after
ext4_set_aops() in the open path.

New file
ext4_set_inode_flags // Set S_DAX flag
ext4_set_aops // Set aops to ext4_dax_aops

Existing file
ext4_set_aops // Set aops to ext4_da_aops
ext4_set_inode_flags // Set S_DAX flag

Change ext4_iget() to initialize i_flags before ext4_set_aops().
