The flush_cache_page() only remove a PAGE_SIZE sized range from the cache.
However, it does not cover the full pages in a THP except a head page.
Replace it with flush_cache_range() to fix this issue.  This is just a
documentation issue with the respect to properly documenting the expected
usage of cache flushing before modifying the pmd.  However, in practice
this is not a problem due to the fact that DAX is not available on
architectures with virtually indexed caches per:

  commit d92576f1167c ("dax: does not work correctly with virtual aliasing caches")

Fixes: f729c8c9b24f ("dax: wrprotect pmd_t in dax_mapping_entry_mkclean")
