Use dax_is_supported() to validate whether the architecture has
virtually aliased data caches at mount time. Mount fails if dax=always
is requested as a mount option on an architecture which does not support

This is relevant for architectures which require a dynamic check
to validate whether they have virtually aliased data caches.

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