Okay, make sense. If the number of compacted_2b misleads, how about
just

	if ((vi->z_advise & Z_EROFS_ADVISE_COMPACTED_2B) &&
	    compacted_4b_initial <= totalidx) {
		compacted_2b = ...;
	} else {
		compacted_2b = 0;
	}

, and refine the commit message to point out the following facts for
other folks:

- compacted_4b_initial is used contain the very first lclusters in order
  to fulfill the alignment of the first compacted_2b pack;

- compacted_4b_end is used for the last lclusters which aren't fitted in
  the previous compacted_2b packs;

- if compacted_4b_initial > totalidx, the whole indexes will be compacted
  4B and handled with compacted_4b_initial.

Thanks,
Gao Xiang
