dax_clear_blocks is currently performing a cond_resched() after every
PAGE_SIZE memset.  We need not check so frequently, for example md-raid
only calls cond_resched() at stripe granularity.  Also, in preparation
for introducing a dax_map_atomic() operation that temporarily pins a dax
mapping move the call to cond_resched() to the outer loop.
