From: Gao Xiang <gaoxiang25@huawei.com>

Some on-disk structures, fields have been renamed in v5.4,
the corresponding document should be updated as well.

Also fix misrespresentation of file time and words about
fixed-sized output compression, data inline, etc.

Hi,

I plan to update documentation together with
https://lore.kernel.org/r/20191201084040.29275-1-hsiangkao@aol.com/
for this round.

Comments about this are greatly welcomed.

Thanks,
Gao Xiang

changes since v1:
 - mark that "fixed-sized output compression (with compacted indexes)"
   was firstly introduced in v5.3 in order to minimumize metadata;
 - reduce whitespace between on-disk values and words about data mapping
