Subject: simplify ext4_sb_read_encoding regression


I have a Samsung Chromebook Plus (rk3399-gru-kevin) which boots linux
off an external ssd plugged into USB. The root filesystem is ext4 with
unicode support, case folding is enabled only on some directories in
my home directory.

Since 5.17 the system has been unbootable. I ran a git bisect and it
pointed to aa8bf298a96acaaaa3af07d09cf7ffeb9798e48a ext4: simplify

Unfortunately reverting that commit alone did not make 5.17 bootable,
and reverting the whole patch series conflicts with later changes.
