Hi Xiang,

I’m working on this. I have written a test case for this. And I’m also working on setting up GitHub actions to run tests automatically. So far, I’ve got uncompressed tests works, but when lz4 is enable, all test (except 001) fail. I have not found out why. You may see my progress at https://github.com/huww98/erofs-utils/tree/experimental-tests. I will send patches once everything is sorted out.

You mean add a new commit [PATCH v6 3/3], or merge it into [PATCH v7 2/2]? I send it as a separate patch set because it may be merged independent of the cache.c optimization.

I think we still need it, because already mapped bb may be dropped, last_map_block does not always reflect tail_blkaddr.
