I spoke too soon. While I tried merging with the ext4.git dev branch,
a merge conflict made me look closer and I realize I needed to make
the following changes (see diff between your patch set and what is
currently in ext4-dax).

Essentially, I needed to rework the branch to take into account commit
e0198aff3ae3 ("ext4: reject mount options not supported when
remounting in handle_mount_opt()").

The problem is that if you allow handle_mount_opt() to apply the
changes to the dax settings, and then later on, ext4_remount() realize
that we're remounting, and we need to reject the change, there's a
race if we restore the mount options to the original configuration.
Specifically, as Syzkaller pointed out, between when we change the dax
settings and then reset them, it's possible for some file to be opened
with "wrong" dax setting, and then when they are reset, *boom*.

The correct way to deal with this is to reject the mount option change
much earlier, in handle_mount_opt(), *before* we mess with the dax
settings.

Please take a look at the ext4-dax for the actual changes which I
made.

Cheers,

- Ted
