Replace the following fs/Kconfig:FS_DAX dependency:

  depends on !(ARM || MIPS || SPARC)

By a runtime check within alloc_dax(). This runtime check returns
ERR_PTR(-EOPNOTSUPP) if the @ops parameter is non-NULL (which means
the kernel is using an aliased mapping) on an architecture which
has data cache aliasing.

Change the return value from NULL to PTR_ERR(-EOPNOTSUPP) for
CONFIG_DAX=n for consistency.

This is done in preparation for using cpu_dcache_is_aliasing() in a
following change which will properly support architectures which detect
data cache aliasing at runtime.

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