The dax dedupe comparison need the iomap_ops pointer as argument, so my
understanding is that we don't modify the argument list of
generic_remap_file_range_prep(), but move its code into
__generic_remap_file_range_prep() whose argument list can be modified to
accepts the iomap_ops pointer. Then it looks like this:

```
int dax_remap_file_range_prep(struct file *file_in, loff_t pos_in,
struct file *file_out, loff_t pos_out,
loff_t *len, unsigned int remap_flags,
const struct iomap_ops *ops)
{
return __generic_remap_file_range_prep(file_in, pos_in, file_out,
pos_out, len, remap_flags, ops);
}
EXPORT_SYMBOL(dax_remap_file_range_prep);

int generic_remap_file_range_prep(struct file *file_in, loff_t pos_in,
struct file *file_out, loff_t pos_out,
loff_t *len, unsigned int remap_flags)
{
return __generic_remap_file_range_prep(file_in, pos_in, file_out,
pos_out, len, remap_flags, NULL);
}
EXPORT_SYMBOL(generic_remap_file_range_prep);
```

Am i right?
