memory_failure_dev_pagemap() at the moment assumes base pages (e.g.
dax_lock_page()). For pagemap with compound pages fetch the
compound_head in case we are handling a tail page memory failure.
Currently this is a nop, but in the advent of compound pages in
dev_pagemap it allows memory_failure_dev_pagemap() to keep working.

Unless / until we do compound pages for the filesystem-dax case, I
would add a comment like:
/* pages instantiated by device-dax (not filesystem-dax) may be
compound pages */
