The only user of type_level is btrfs_compress_pages(). I do make an
extra call to .set_level() there just to be safe, but that can be taken
out as it should be correctly set from when we mounted.

I envisioned .set_level() to be called when setting the compression
level of the mount. This can be used in the same place if we were to add
per-file compression levels too. I mention later, but an important part
of .set_level() is to repurpose the meaning of 0 from meaning use the
default to meaning use any workspace available.
