Testing EXT4 & Btrfs On A Serial ATA 3.0 SSD

When running the same FS-Mark test but not enforcing any sync/fsync calls, the stock Btrfs performance was about the same speed as EXT4. Only when enabling Zlib and LZO compression did the results go higher.

When dealing with four threads of FS-Mark, Btrfs was slower, except again when enabling disk compression.

Carrying out an 8GB file write using IOzone resulted in about the same speed for Btrfs and EXT4. Only when Zlib/LZO compression was enabled did the Btrfs numbers increase.
