For android scenario, encryption becomes a common case now, so I think we can
remove unlikely here.

Look at this again, it seems f2fs_wait_on_block_writeback() is not related to
f2fs_grab_read_bio(), so we can move it here to make code logic more clear:

if (f2fs_encrypted_file(inode)) {
	/* */
	f2fs_wait_on_block_writeback(F2FS_I_SB(inode), block_nr);
}

Also, in f2fs_submit_page_read(), we need to adjust to:

- f2fs_grab_read_bio()
- f2fs_wait_on_block_writeback()
- bio_add_page()

How do you think?

Thanks,
