dax_direct_access() is a special case of accessing pmem via a page
offset and without a struct page.

Because the dax driver is well aware of the special protections it has
mapped memory with, call dev_access_[en|dis]able() directly instead of
the unnecessary overhead of trying to get a page to kmap.

Like kmap though, leverage the existing dax_read[un]lock() functions
because they are already required to surround the use of the memory
returned from dax_direct_access().
