Got it. We didn't notice this new way. Will fix in the updated version.

OK, We will check all invalf()s soon.

And may I ask one more question about this... I'm a bit confused,
since we have erofs_err() which print sb->s_id as well, so which
one (errorfc or erofs_err) is more perferred to choose in especially
fill_super()?

Yes, we will update this patch based on the latest branch later
for this convert.
