Subject[RFC PATCH V2 05/12] fs: remove unneeded IS_DAX() check
Date
From: Ira Weiny <ira.weiny@intel.com>

The IS_DAX() check in io_is_direct() causes a race between changing the
DAX mode and creating the iocb flags.

Remove the check because DAX now emulates the page cache API and
therefore it does not matter if the file mode is DAX or not when the
iocb flags are created.
