I fail to see how this succeeds given
drivers/md/dm-ioctl.c:is_valid_type() only allows transitions from:

DM_TYPE_BIO_BASED => DM_TYPE_DAX_BIO_BASED

If you don't think you need this specialization that is fine.. but DM
devices supporting suspending (as part of table reloads) so is there any
risk that there will be inflight IO (say if someone did 'dmsetup suspend
--noflush').. and then upon reload the device type changed out from
under us.. anyway, I don't have all the PMEM DAX stuff paged back into
my head yet.

But this just seems like we really shouldn't be allowing the
transition from what was DM_TYPE_DAX_BIO_BASED back to DM_TYPE_BIO_BASED
