Not for XFS - the merkle tree is not held as file data.

That said, the merkle tree in XFS is not page cache or block aligned
metadata either, so we really want the same memory buffer based
interface for the merkle tree reading so that the merkle tree code
can read directly from the xfs-buf rather than requiring us to copy
it out of the xfsbuf into temporary pages...
