Add more words about this.... since EROFS uses rolling decompression (which means
the sliding window is limited (e.g. 64k, but some vendors adjust it to 12k for
example ) even though the uncompressed size is too large (e.g. 128k)), and by
using get_page(), vmap(), and z_erofs_put_shortlivedpage() to free such usage.
Since shortlivedpages won't share with other parallel thread, so it's safe to
just like this to decrease page count (it means how many shared get_page()
before) and recycle to pagepool (on the last reference for later use.)

Thanks,
Gao Xiang
