As of these upstream kernel commits:

commit 6e2608dfd934 ("xfs, dax: introduce xfs_dax_aops")
commit 5f0663bb4a64 ("ext4, dax: introduce ext4_dax_aops")

generic/223 fails on XFS and ext4 because filesystems mounted with DAX no
longer support bmap.  This is desired behavior and will not be fixed,
according to:

So, just skip over generic/223 when using DAX so we don't throw false
positive test failures.
