Bug#757182: debian-installer: Please provide a warning about BTRFS

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal


BTRFS has some issues that can cause system lockups, filesystem deadlocks that
prevent writing to disk, and other problems.  After some discussion on the
BTRFS mailing list (see the above URL for the archive) the consensus seems to
be that we should have a warning.  BTRFS isn't at the stage where someone with
little knowledge of it can just use it.  To have it work reliably the sysadmin
needs to know more about it than for other filesystems.
