Subject[PATCH 1/2] fs/dax: deposit pagetable even when installing zero page
Date
Architectures like ppc64 use the deposited page table to store hardware
page table slot information. Make sure we deposit a page table when
using zero page at the pmd level for hash.

Without this we hit

Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x00000000
Faulting instruction address: 0xc000000000082a74
Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]
