The way this check is implemented wouldn't IMO do what we need... It
doesn't check the flags that are being set but just the current inode
state. I think it should rather be:

if ((flags ^ oldflags) & EXT4_INODE_DAX_FL) {
...
}

And perhaps move this to a place in ext4_ioctl_setflags() where we check
other similar conflicts.

And then we should check conflicts with the journal flag as well, as I
mentioned in reply to the first patch. There it is more complicated by the
fact that we should disallow setting of both EXT4_INODE_DAX_FL and
EXT4_JOURNAL_DATA_FL at the same time so the checks will be somewhat more
complicated.
