   Make up your mind... this is the third unrelated idea you've had
about working in the area of btrfs. You're bouncing around all over
the place like a hyperactive puppy. Pick *one* thing, and just do it.
Put in the effort to learn about the subsystem (read my earlier emails
for a good approach here). Accept that there are no easy one-liners in
the kernel. The path to writing your first kernel patch is *hard*.
Don't give up at the first hint that each thing isn't going to be
solved in 5 minutes.

   Hugo.
