There are some backward incompatible features pending
for months, mainly due to on-disk format expensions.

However, we should ensure that it cannot be mounted with
old kernels. Otherwise, it will causes unexpected behaviors.

Fixes: ba2b77a82022 ("staging: erofs: add super block operations")
Cc: <stable at vger.kernel.org> # 4.19+
