[GIT PULL] erofs fixes for 5.19-rc1

Hi Linus,

This is a follow-up pull request including some fixes of fscache
mode related to compressed inodes and a cachefiles tracepoint.
There is also a patch to fix an unexpected decompression strategy
change due to a cleanup in the past.  All the fixes are quite small.

Apart from these, documentation is also updated for a better
description of recent new features.

In addition, the reason why I decided to post these now is that
I'm working on folio adaption for compressed files with widely
cleanups.  It seems that some trivial cleanups without actual logical
change can be submitted in advance, so I could have a more recent
codebase to work on folios and avoiding the PG_error page flag for
the next cycle.  It'd be better to submit them in this merge window
instead of post-rc1 since they are not fixes strictly.

All commits have been in -next and stress tested.
Please consider this request!

Gao Xiang
