I'm OK to disable page size other than 4K, 16K, 32K, 64K for now.

Although for other reasons.

Not only for the BUILD_BUG_ON(), but for the fact that btrfs only
support 4K, 16K, 32K, 64K sectorsize, and requires PAGE_SIZE == sectorsize.

Although we're adding subpage support, the subpage support only comes
with 4K sectorsize on 64K page size.

Until variable length version is introduced, 256K/128K page size won't
be support.

Thus I'm fine to disable BTRFS for any arch outside of the supported
page sizes for now.

Thanks,
