mm: silently skip readahead for DAX inodes
For DAX inodes we need to be careful to never have page cache pages in the mapping->page_tree. This radix tree should be composed only of DAX exceptional entries and zero pages. ltp's readahead02 test was triggering a warning because we were trying to insert a DAX exceptional entry but found that a page cache page had already been inserted into the tree. This page was being inserted into the radix tree in response to a readahead(2) call. Readahead doesn't make sense for DAX inodes, but we don't want it to report a failure either. Instead, we just return success and don't do any work.
