[arch-dev-public] [signoff] btrfs-progs

Hi guys,

Seems not many of us yet use btrfs, I therefore would like to ask if
any users can signoff on the btrfs-progs in testing (i.e. verify that
the package appears to work).

In particular, I'm interested to hear if someone who uses btrfs-progs
and initscripts from testing could verify that the multi-device
support still works? If you have the btrfs hook in your initramfs,
then please enable udev too and regenerate the image to verify that
that also still works.

For those who are interested: the change we made was to scan btrfs
devices for multi-device support using udev rules as the devices
appear rather than doing it unconditionally after "all the devices
should be ready". This approach should hopefully be more reliable than
the old one.
