device-dax: fix 'dax' device filesystem inode destruction crash

The inode destruction path for the 'dax' device filesystem incorrectly
assumes that the inode was initialized through 'alloc_dax()'. However,
if someone attempts to directly mount the dax filesystem with 'mount -t
dax dax mnt' that will bypass 'alloc_dax()' and the following failure
signatures may occur as a result:

 kill_dax() must be called before final iput()

Add missing initialization of the 'struct dax_device' and inode so that
the destruction path does not kfree() or ida_simple_remove()
uninitialized data.

Fixes: 7b6be844 ("dax: refactor dax-fs into a generic provider of 'struct dax_device' instances")
