Hi Linus, please pull from:

  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/nvdimm/nvdimm
tags/libnvdimm-fixes-5.9-rc6

...to receive a handful of fixes to address a string of mistakes in
the mechanism for device-mapper to determine if its component devices
are dax capable. You will notice that this branch was rebased this
morning and it has not appeared in -next. I decided to cut short the
soak time because the infinite-recursion regression is currently
crashing anyone attempting to test filesystem-dax in 5.9-rc5+. The
most recent rebase folded in a compile fix reported by the kbuild
robot for the uncommon CONFIG_DAX=m case. It should, "should",  be all
good now.

  dax: Fix stack overflow when mounting fsdax pmem device (2020-09-20
08:57:36 -0700)

----------------------------------------------------------------
libnvdimm fixes for 5.9-rc6

- Fix an original bug in device-mapper table reference counting when
  interrogating dax capability in the component device. This bug was
  hidden by the following bug.

- Fix device-mapper to use the proper helper (dax_supported() instead of
  the leaf helper generic_fsdax_supported()) to determine dax operation
  of a stacked block device configuration. The original implementation
  is only valid for one level of dax-capable block device stacking. This
  bug was discovered while fixing the below regression.

- Fix an infinite recursion regression introduced by broken attempts to
  quiet the generic_fsdax_supported() path and make it bail out before
  logging "dax capability not found" errors.

Thanks for the explanation, all looks fine.
