Subject[PATCH] dm: writecache: add DAX dependency
The new dm-writecache driver inconditionally uses the dax
subsystem, leading to link errors in some configurations:

drivers/md/dm-writecache.o: In function `writecache_ctr':
dm-writecache.c:(.text+0x1fdc): undefined reference to `dax_read_lock'
dm-writecache.c:(.text+0x2004): undefined reference to `dax_direct_access'
dm-writecache.c:(.text+0x21cc): undefined reference to `dax_read_unlock'

It seems wrong to require DAX in order to build the writecache
driver, but that at least avoids randconfig build errors.

Fixes: bb15b431d650 ("dm: add writecache target")
