    Poor Butters.

    He'll never be ready to replace ext4.

    Default Reduced patchset has made it to 3.17 before -rc1,

    Somewhat compacted version of this patch set (i.e. fixes of nasty issues rather than less significant stuff) has actually made it into 3.17-rc1.

    Just looking into GIT commits log:
    Code:
    commit e64df3ebe8262c8203d1fe4f541e0241c3112c01
    Merge: 53b95d6 8d875f9

        Merge branch 'for-linus2' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mason/linux-btrfs
        
        Pull btrfs updates from Chris Mason:
         "These are all fixes I'd like to get out to a broader audience.
        
          The biggest of the bunch is Mark's quota fix, which is also in the
          SUSE kernel, and makes our subvolume quotas dramatically more
          accurate.
        
          I've been running xfstests with these against your current git
          overnight, but I'm queueing up longer tests as well"
        
        * 'for-linus2' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mason/linux-btrfs:
          btrfs: disable strict file flushes for renames and truncates
          Btrfs: fix csum tree corruption, duplicate and outdated checksums
          Btrfs: Fix memory corruption by ulist_add_merge() on 32bit arch
          Btrfs: fix compressed write corruption on enospc
          btrfs: correctly handle return from ulist_add
          btrfs: qgroup: account shared subtrees during snapshot delete
          Btrfs: read lock extent buffer while walking backrefs
          Btrfs: __btrfs_mod_ref should always use no_quota
          btrfs: adjust statfs calculations according to raid profiles
    And speaking of butter replacing ext4... in fact I use btrfs on some non-critical systems and it "just works" for simple cases. Yet it provides nice things like snapshots and recent versions got fairly good performance as well, at least in more or less common use cases.
