    A lot of new code landed yesterday in the Btrfs file-system's "for-next" Git branch ahead of the Linux 5.15 merge window opening up in about one month's time...

    What is progress of updating ZSTD in-kernel version? A few month ago there was an effort to sync the quite dated in-kernel zstd code with upstream, but I can't find any updates regarding this topic. Any updates?

      I was wondering the same thing too. I'm not an LKML scouring ninja like Michael.

            I like the idea of fs-verity over a master key/password that will unlock the whole disk at boot time.

            I heard iOS devices were using such encryption scheme for a long time now.

              Very well...
              Meanwhile the other night I was doing the updates of Tumbleweed and a storm interrupted the electricity, when I restarted the black screen, after the panic (I needed the pc in the morning at work), I remembered that Tumbleweed uses BTRFS and snapshots, a rollback literally saved me.
