dax: Fix xarray entry association for mixed mappings
When inserting entry into xarray, we store mapping and index in corresponding struct pages for memory error handling. When it happened that one process was mapping file at PMD granularity while another process at PTE granularity, we could wrongly deassociate PMD range and then reassociate PTE range leaving the rest of struct pages in PMD range without mapping information which could later cause missed notifications about memory errors. Fix the problem by calling the association / deassociation code if and only if we are really going to update the xarray (deassociating and associating zero or empty entries is just no-op so there's no reason to complicate the code with trying to avoid the calls for these cases).
