trace_erofs_readpage is used to trace .readpage() interface (it represents sync read)
hook rather than its internal implementation z_erofs_do_read_page (which both .readpage()
and .readpages() uses it). Chen Gong places the tracepoint to a wrong place by mistake.
And we found it by our internal test using this tracepoint.

I think so, which is not very important but I think it should be fixed...
