This is an effort to use iomap for direct I/O in btrfs. This would
change the call from __blockdev_direct_io() to iomap_dio_rw().

The main objective is to lose the buffer head and use bio defined by
iomap code, and hopefully to use more of generic-FS codebase.

These patches are based and tested on kdave/for-next-20200511. I
have tested it against xfstests/btrfs.

The tree is available at

Changes since v1
- Incorporated back the efficiency change for inode locking
- Review comments about coding style and git comments
- Merge related patches into one
- Direct read to go through btrfs_direct_IO()
- Removal of no longer used function dio_end_io()

Changes since v2
- aligning iomap offset/length to the position/length of I/O
- Removed btrfs_dio_data
- Re-incorporating write efficiency changes caused lockdep_assert() in
  iomap to be triggered, remove that code.

Changes since v3
- Fixed freeze on generic/095. Use iomap_end() to account for
  failed/incomplete dio instead of btrfs_dio_data

Changes since v4
- moved lockdep_assert_held() to functions calling iomap_dio_rw()
  This may be called immidiately after calling inode lock and
  may feel not required, but it seems important.
- Removed comments which are no longer required
- Changed commit comments to make them more appropriate

Changes since v5
- restore inode_dio_wait() in truncate
- Removed lockdep_assert_held() near callers

Changes since v6
- Fixed hangs due to underlying device failures
- Removed the patch to wait while releasing pages

Changes since v7
- Moved reservation into btrfs iomap begin()/end() for correct
  reservation cleanup in case of device error.
- Merged patches switch to iomap, and adding btrfs_iomap_end()
  for easier bisection. The switch to iomap would fail in case
  of dio after buffered writes.
