Add a word, I have some little concern about post read procession order
a bit as I mentioned before, because I'd like to move common EROFS
decompression code out in the future as well for other fses to use
after we think it's mature enough.

It seems the current code mainly addresses eliminating duplicated code,
therefore I have no idea about that...
