Note that count value will be always greater than EROFS_BLKSIZ when
calling erofs_compress_destsize() in vle_compress_one(). So, the d1
always >= 1 for compressed block in vle_write_indexes(). That is to
say tail-end block can't be compressed.

Hi Yue,

I once thought tail end block can be compressed with < EROFS_BLKSIZ as
well (as long as it has some benefit) and also tail-packing inline
like uncompressed cases together after compress extents, so that when we
reading the last compress extent meta block, the tail-packing compressed
data can be loaded together.

Currently, I think we could do that, but could you add some DBG_BUGON
like DBG_BUGON(!raw) right above
"type = Z_EROFS_VLE_CLUSTER_TYPE_PLAIN;" and a TODO comment to mention
tail-packing inline compressed cases is under TODO list? That would be
much better.

Thanks,
Gao Xiang

Will do it in v2.
