ext4, dax: set ext4_dax_aops for dax files

Sync syscall to DAX file needs to flush processor cache, but it
currently does not flush to existing DAX files.  This is because
'ext4_da_aops' is set to address_space_operations of existing DAX
files, instead of 'ext4_dax_aops', since S_DAX flag is set after
ext4_set_aops() in the open path.

  New file
  --------
  lookup_open
    ext4_create
      __ext4_new_inode
        ext4_set_inode_flags   // Set S_DAX flag
      ext4_set_aops            // Set aops to ext4_dax_aops

  Existing file
  -------------
  lookup_open
    ext4_lookup
      ext4_iget
        ext4_set_aops          // Set aops to ext4_da_aops
        ext4_set_inode_flags   // Set S_DAX flag

Change ext4_iget() to initialize i_flags before ext4_set_aops().
