[PATCH v2 12/30] dax: remove block device dependencies




From: Stefan Hajnoczi <stefanha@xxxxxxxxxx>

Although struct dax_device itself is not tied to a block device, some
DAX code assumes there is a block device.  Make block devices optional
by allowing bdev to be NULL in commonly used DAX APIs.

When there is no block device:
 * Skip the partition offset calculation in bdev_dax_pgoff()
 * Skip the blkdev_issue_zeroout() optimization

Note that more block device assumptions remain but I haven't reach those
code paths yet.
