Well, I'm not concerned about the fsparam enum, it's just that
encoding an integer into a flags bit field is just ... messy.
Especially when encoding that state can be done with just 2 flags.

If you want to keep the xfs_mount_dax_mode() wrapper, then:

static inline uint32_t xfs_mount_dax_mode(struct xfs_mount *mp)
{
if (mp->m_flags & XFS_MOUNT_DAX_NEVER)
return XFS_DAX_NEVER;
if (mp->m_flags & XFS_MOUNT_DAX_ALWAYS)
return XFS_DAX_ALWAYS;
return XFS_DAX_IFLAG;
}

but once it's encoded in flags like this, the wrapper really isn't
necessary...

Also, while I think of it, can we change "iflag" to "inode". i.e.
the DAX state is held on the inode. Saying it comes from an "inode
flag" encodes the implementation into the user interface. i.e. it
could well be held in an xattr on the inode on another filesystem,
so we shouldn't mention "flag" in the user API....

Cheers,

Dave.
