A given filesystem-dax vma is allowed to support both 4K and 2M
mappings, so the vma_mmu_pagesize() is not granular enough to describe
the capabilities of a filesystem-dax vma. In the device-dax case,
where there are mapping guarantees, the implementation does arrange
for vma_mmu_pagesize() to reflect the right page size.
