Subject[RFC PATCH 0/2] erofs: dio/dax support for non-tailpacking cases
Hi folks,

This patchset mainly adds preliminary EROFS iomap dio/dax support
for non-tailpacking uncompressed cases.

Direct I/O is useful in certain scenarios for uncompressed files.
For example, double pagecache can be avoid by direct I/O when
loop device is used for uncompressed files containing upper layer
compressed filesystem.

Also, DAX is quite useful for some VM use cases in order to
save guest memory extremely by using the minimal lightweight EROFS.

Tail-packing inline iomap support will be handled later since
currently iomap doesn't support such data pattern, which is
independent to non-tailpacking cases.

Comments are welcome. Thanks for your time on reading this!
