We're using ->mapping->host and ->index.  Ordinarily that would mean the page
needs to be a pagecache page.  But bio_page can also be a compressed page or a
bounce page containing fs-layer encrypted contents.

Is your suggestion to keep using fio->page->mapping->host (since encrypted pages
don't have a mapping), but start using bio_page->index (since f2fs apparently
*does* set ->index for compressed pages, and if the file uses fs-layer
encryption then f2fs_set_bio_crypt_ctx() won't use the index anyway)?

Does this mean the code is currently broken for compression + inline encryption
because it's using the wrong ->index?  I think the answer is no, since
f2fs_write_compressed_pages() will still pass the first 'nr_cpages' pagecache
pages along with the compressed pages.  In that case, your suggestion would be a
cleanup rather than a fix?

It would be helpful if there was an f2fs mount option to auto-enable compression
on all files (similar to how test_dummy_encryption auto-enables encryption on
all files) so that it could be tested more easily.
