In preparation for using FL_LAYOUT leases to allow coordination between
the kernel and processes doing userspace flushes / RDMA with DAX
mappings, add this helper that can be used to detect when block-map
updates are not allowed.

This is targeted to be used in an ->iomap_begin() implementation where
we may have various filesystem locks held and can not synchronously wait
for any FL_LAYOUT leases to be released. In particular an iomap mmap
fault handler running under mmap_sem can not unlock that semaphore and
wait for these leases to be unlocked. Instead, this signals the lease
holder(s) that a break is requested and immediately returns with an
