+ * btrfs_read_dev_super - read a valid superblock from a block device
+ * @fd: file descriptor of the device
+ * @sb: buffer where the superblock is going to be read in
+ * @sb_bytenr: offset of the particular superblock copy we want
+ * @sbflags: flags controlling how the superblock is read
+ *
+ * This function is used by various btrfs comands to obtain a valid superblock.
+ *
+ * It's mode of operation is controlled by the @sb_bytenr and @sbdflags
+ * parameters. If SBREAD_RECOVER flag is set and @sb_bytenr is
+ * BTRFS_SUPER_INFO_OFFSET then the function reads all 3 superblock copies and
+ * returns the newest one. If SBREAD_RECOVER is not set then only a single
+ * copy is read, which one is decided by @sb_bytenr. If @sb_bytenr !=
+ * BTRFS_SUPER_INFO_OFFSET then the @sbflags is effectively ignored and only a
+ * single copy is read.
