fs/dax.c: use new return type vm_fault_t
Use new return type vm_fault_t for fault handler. For now, this is just documenting that the function returns a VM_FAULT value rather than an errno. Once all instances are converted, vm_fault_t will become a distinct type. commit 1c8f422059ae ("mm: change return type to vm_fault_t") There was an existing bug inside dax_load_hole() if vm_insert_mixed had failed to allocate a page table, we'd return VM_FAULT_NOPAGE instead of VM_FAULT_OOM. With new vmf_insert_mixed() this issue is addressed. vm_insert_mixed_mkwrite has inefficiency when it returns an error value, driver has to convert it to vm_fault_t type. With new vmf_insert_mixed_mkwrite() this limitation will be addressed.
