Note that my intent with recommending ENOPKG was for it to be returned in the
!f2fs_cops[algorithm] case, similar to how opening an encrypted file when the
encryption algorithm is recognized but not supported by the kernel returns
ENOPKG.  For a truly unrecognized algorithm (algorithm >= COMPRESS_MAX), EINVAL
would probably be more appropriate.  So if !f2fs_cops[algorithm] is now allowed,
then ENOPKG should no longer be among the error codes this ioctl returns.
