block: disable block device DAX by default

The recent *sync enabling discovered that we are inserting into the
block_device pagecache counter to the expectations of the dirty data
tracking for dax mappings.  This can lead to data corruption.

We want to support DAX for block devices eventually, but it requires
wider changes to properly manage the pagecache.

   mount_bdev+0x180/0x1b0

Mark the support broken so its disabled by default, but otherwise still
available for testing.

When DAX support is available (CONFIG_FS_DAX) raw block
devices can also support direct userspace access to the
storage capacity via MMAP(2) similar to a file on a
DAX-enabled filesystem. However, the DAX I/O-path disables
some standard I/O-statistics, and the MMAP(2) path has some
operational differences due to bypassing the page
cache. If in doubt, say N.
