Btrfs Gets A Few More Linux 3.15 Changes
For the Linux 3.15 kernel were already a lot of Btrfs bug and performance fixes, but now late into the 3.15 merge window have been some more fixes.
Chris Mason at Facebook has sent in a pull request for Linux 3.15 that includes most notably a fix for a potential corruption problem with the Btrfs file-system. The corruption issue was a regression introduced in Linux 3.14 that can cause corruption in the extent allocation tree when snapshots are used.
There were also some send/recv deadlock fixes and changes that landed. More details via the Git pull to mainline.
