EROFS proposes its very unique fixed-sized output compression and inplace
decompression framework joining into the ecosystem of compression filesystem, I
think it will enrich diversity of compression filesystem, and bring healthy
competition there.

I do believe this is the right time to promote erofs to fs/ directory, let it be
the formal member of filesystem clubhouse.
