Thanks; I'll make sure that this at least gets applied to Debian.  Note
that full filesystem support in libparted is deprecated upstream so I
doubt there's any point in Luca trying to do anything more detailed than
simple recognition there.

Is it worth uploading partman-btrfs now?  I expect there'll be some lead
time in NEW anyway, and we might as well get started even if you still
need a custom kernel to make use of it.
