Use the letter 'x' to set/get dax attribute on a directory/file.

Signed-off-by: Xiao Yang <yangx.jy@cn.fujitsu.com>
---

V1->V2:
1) Define FS_DAX_FL in order and add missing 'x' letter in manpage.
2) Add more detailed description about 'x' attribute.
3) 'x' is a separate attribute and doesn't always affect S_DAX(i.e.
   pagecache bypass) so remove the related info.

Hi,

Is there any comment on the v2 patch?

Thanks,

Per-file support is not supported on ext2...

So I'm suspicious of this change.  It is probably not an issue but I just
wanted to check if you are trying to test on ext2?

Hi Ira,

Thanks for your reply. :-)
chattr failed to set the 'x' flag on ext2 sliently because ext2_ioctl() 
in kernel drops
unsupported 'FS_DAX_FL' sliently:
----------------------------------------------
# touch file
# chattr +x file;echo $?
0
# lsattr file
--------------------- file
----------------------------------------------

ext2_ioctl() drops all unsupported flags sliently(see the following 
code) so I am
not sure if we should return -EOPNOTSUPP for the unsupported  FS_DAX_FL:
----------------------------------------------
long ext2_ioctl(struct file *filp, unsigned int cmd, unsigned long arg)
...
         case EXT2_IOC_SETFLAGS: {
...
                 flags = flags & EXT2_FL_USER_MODIFIABLE;
                 flags |= oldflags & ~EXT2_FL_USER_MODIFIABLE;
                 ei->i_flags = flags;

                 ext2_set_inode_flags(inode);
...
----------------------------------------------

Best Regards,
Xiao Yang

It is up to the kernel to handle the various flags, definitely the chattr
command should not be trying to guess which flags are supported, since
this can definitely change between kernels and the underlying filesystems.

Note that the headers in e2fsprogs are all using "ext2" in the name,
regardless of the fact that the flags apply to ext3 and ext4.

Cheers, Andreas

One minor nit below, but otherwise looks OK.

Should this be "DAX" ?  That is how it is commonly used in the kernel.

Hi Andreas,

Agreed,  the various flags are handled by kernel instead of chattr 
command. :-)

Hi Andreas,

Thanks a lot for your review.

Either 'Dax' or 'DAX' is fine to me because it is just the output of 
lsattr -v.
For example, xfs_io shows 'dax' instead of 'DAX':
# xfs_io -c "lsattr -v" file
[dax] file

BTW:
I just used 'Dax' to follow the current format of output(i.e. capitalize 
the first letter).

Do you want me to send v3 patch with the 'DAX'? :-)

Best Regards,
Xiao Yang
