We check IS_DAX(inode) before calling either xfs_file_dax_read or
xfs_file_dax_write, and this will lead the call being optimized out at
compile time when CONFIG_FS_DAX is disabled.

However, the two functions are marked STATIC, so they become global
symbols when CONFIG_XFS_DEBUG is set, leaving us with two unused global
functions that call into an undefined function and a broken "allmodconfig"

fs/built-in.o: In function `xfs_file_dax_read':
fs/xfs/xfs_file.c:348: undefined reference to `dax_do_io'
fs/built-in.o: In function `xfs_file_dax_write':
fs/xfs/xfs_file.c:758: undefined reference to `dax_do_io'

Marking the two functions 'static noinline' instead of 'STATIC' will let
the compiler drop the symbols when there are no callers but avoid the
implicit inlining.
