There is no point to ask how many device-dax instances the kernel should
support. Since we are already using a dynamic major number, just allow
the max number of minors by default and be done. This also fixes the
fact that the proposed max for the NR_DEV_DAX range was larger than what
could be supported by alloc_chrdev_region().

Fixes: ba09c01d2fa8 ("dax: convert to the cdev api")

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
