Subject[PATCH V2] uapi: fix statx attribute value overlap for DAX & MOUNT_ROOT
Date
[*] Note: This needs to be merged as soon as possible as it's introducing an incompatible UAPI change...

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.

Fixes: 80340fe3605c ("statx: add mount_root")
Fixes: 712b2698e4c0 ("fs/stat: Define DAX statx attribute")
