brd: remove dax support
DAX support in brd is awkward because its backing page frames are distinct from the ones provided by pmem, dcssblk, or axonram. We need pfn_t_devmap() entries to fully support DAX, and the limited DAX support for pfn_t_special() page frames is not interesting for brd when pmem is already a superset of brd. Lastly, brd is the only dax capable driver that may sleep in its ->direct_access() implementation. So it causes a global burden with no net gain of kernel functionality. For all these reasons, remove DAX support.
