Works fine in some error injection testing.

So I'm fine with the change but please expand the changelog to something
like:

DAX currently doesn't set errors in the mapping when cache flushing fails
in dax_writeback_mapping_range(). Since this function can get called only
from fsync(2) or sync(2), this is actually as good as it can currently get
since we correctly propagate the error up from dax_writeback_mapping_range()
to filemap_fdatawrite(). However in the future better writeback error
handling will enable us to properly report these errors on fsync(2) even if
there are multiple file descriptors open against the file or if sync(2)
gets called before fsync(2). So convert DAX to using standard error
reporting through the mapping.

After improving the changelog you can add:
