I have to say I still don't get the point of the whole description
above and the patch itself honestly. even if (bb->buffers.off %
EROFS_BLKSIZ == 0), the whole block can be used for tail-packing
inline + inode. Assume that you testcase above is the case you
addressed, could you elaborate them in detail?

If the original behavior is no user-visiable, I'm not sure what
issue you'd like to resolve...

Thanks,
Gao Xiang
