It is already a static function, I have no idea what is wrong here.

I don't know anything difference of that, it is just a naming.

I cannot fully understand your point (sorry about my English),
I will reply you about this later.

I can change it later, sbi and dsb (It has not good meaning in Chinese, although).

This page can save in bdev page cache, it contains not only the erofs
superblock so it can be fetched in page cache later.

I just copied it from f2fs, I have no idea which one is best and
which fs I could refer to.

Later patch will fill this function.

Al think it is not urgent as well,

See Al's comments,
