Subject[PATCH part2 2/4] earlycpio.c: Fix the confusing comment of find_cpio_data().
Date
The comments of find_cpio_data() says:

* @offset: When a matching file is found, this is the offset to the
* beginning of the cpio. ......

But according to the code,

dptr = PTR_ALIGN(p + ch[C_NAMESIZE], 4);
nptr = PTR_ALIGN(dptr + ch[C_FILESIZE], 4);
....
*offset = (long)nptr - (long)data; /* data is the cpio file */

@offset is the offset of the next file, not the matching file itself.
This is confused and may cause unnecessary waste of time to debug.
So fix it.

v1 -> v2:
As tj suggested, rename @offset to @nextoff which is more clear to
users. And also adjust the new comments.
