dax: fix conversion of holes to PMDs

When we get a DAX PMD fault for a write it is possible that there could
be some number of 4k zero pages already present for the same range that
were inserted to service reads from a hole.  These 4k zero pages need to
be unmapped from the VMAs and removed from the struct address_space
radix tree before the real DAX PMD entry can be inserted.

For PTE faults this same use case also exists and is handled by a
combination of unmap_mapping_range() to unmap the VMAs and
delete_from_page_cache() to remove the page from the address_space radix

For PMD faults we do have a call to unmap_mapping_range() (protected by
a buffer_new() check), but nothing clears out the radix tree entry.  The
buffer_new() check is also incorrect as the current ext4 and XFS
filesystem code will never return a buffer_head with BH_New set, even
when allocating new blocks over a hole.  Instead the filesystem will
zero the blocks manually and return a buffer_head with only BH_Mapped

Fix this situation by removing the buffer_new() check and adding a call
to truncate_inode_pages_range() to clear out the radix tree entries
before we insert the DAX PMD.
