Since this morning I've been running Bcachefs on a Intel M.2 SSD and with this very initial testing it's been going fine: no crashes, kernel panics, or immediate corruption problems. I built the kernel from this Git branch and these bcache-tools in user-space.

I compared the Bcachefs performance to EXT4 and Btrfs on the same solid-state drive. I may run a follow-up article this weekend with XFS and F2FS, as was pressed for time in getting out these initial benchmarks along with further tests of bcachefs. The default mount options were used on each of the file-systems as was the same kernel build and system. Via the Phoronix Test Suite I ran a variety of common Linux file-system tests. The
