Subject[PATCH v4 2/7] dax: fallback from pmd to pte on error
Date
From: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com>

In preparation for consulting a badblocks list in pmem_direct_access(),
teach dax_pmd_fault() to fallback rather than fail immediately upon
encountering an error. The thought being that reducing the span of the
dax request may avoid the error region.
