That may be true, but it glosses over how awful performance is on those
workloads on btrfs.  A single Berkeley DB transaction can literally take
minutes.  btrfs in its default configuration is completely unusable for
any system that uses databases *at all*, which is essentially everything
but tiny embedded systems.  I won't even use it on /tmp.
