Subject[PATCH 1/2] uapi: fix statx attribute value overlap for DAX & MOUNT_ROOT
From
Date
STATX_ATTR_MOUNT_ROOT and STATX_ATTR_DAX got merged with the same value,
so one of them needs fixing. Move STATX_ATTR_DAX.

While we're in here, clarify the value-matching scheme for some of the
attributes, and explain why the value for DAX does not match.
