[PATCH v3 RESEND] staging: erofs: fix an error handling in erofs_readdir()

From: Gao Xiang <gaoxiang25 at huawei.com>

Richard observed a forever loop of erofs_read_raw_page() [1]
which can be generated by forcely setting ->u.i_blkaddr
to 0xdeadbeef (as my understanding block layer can
handle access beyond end of device correctly).

After digging into that, it seems the problem is highly
related with directories and then I found the root cause
is an improper error handling in erofs_readdir().

Let's fix it now.

[RESEND] --> add the missing v3 version in subject, no logic change.

changelog from v2:
 - transform EIO to EFSCORRUPTED as suggested by Matthew;

changelog from v1:
 - fix the incorrect external link in commit message.

This patch is based on the following patch as well

can still be properly applied after this patch.
