When calling __generic_fsdax_supported(), a dax-unsupported device may
not have dax_dev as NULL, e.g. the dax related code block is not enabled
by Kconfig.

Therefore in __generic_fsdax_supported(), to check whether a device
supports DAX or not, the following order should be performed,
- If dax_dev pointer is NULL, it means the device driver explicitly
  announce it doesn't support DAX. Then it is OK to directly return
  false from __generic_fsdax_supported().
- If dax_dev pointer is NOT NULL, it might be because the driver doesn't
  support DAX and not explicitly initialize related data structure. Then
  bdev_dax_supported() should be called for further check.

IMHO if device driver desn't explicitly set its dax_dev pointer to NULL,
this is not a bug. Calling bdev_dax_supported() makes sure they can be
recognized as dax-unsupported eventually.

This patch does the following change for the above purpose,
    -       if (!dax_dev && !bdev_dax_supported(bdev, blocksize)) {
    +       if (!dax_dev || !bdev_dax_supported(bdev, blocksize)) {
