What do you mean outside of fs/dax, do you literally mean outside of
fs/dax.c, or the devdax case (i.e. dax without fs-entanglements)? Memory
failure needs ->mapping and ->index to rmap dax pages. See
mm/memory-failure.c::__add_to_kill() and
mm/memory-failure.c::__add_to_kill_fsdax() where that latter one is for
cases where the fs needs has signed up to react to dax page failure.
