* Btrfs-progs: Do not force mixed block group creation unless '-M' option is ↵Chandan Rajendra2015-11-02
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | specified When creating small Btrfs filesystem instances (i.e. filesystem size <= 1GiB), mkfs.btrfs fails if both sectorsize and nodesize are specified on the command line and sectorsize != nodesize, since mixed block groups involves both data and metadata blocks sharing the same block group. This is an incorrect behavior when '-M' option isn't specified on the command line. This commit makes optional the creation of mixed block groups i.e. Mixed block groups are created only when -M option is specified on the command line. Since we now allow small filesystem instances with sectorsize != nodesize to be created, we can end up in the following situation, [root@localhost ~]# mkfs.btrfs -f -n 65536 /dev/loop0 btrfs-progs v3.19-rc2-405-g976307c See for more information.

This is because of things like large metadata block size, DUP mode used for metadata and global reservation consuming space. Also, large nodesize does not make sense on small filesystems, hence this should not be an issue. Signed-off-by: Chandan Rajendra <> Signed-off-by: David Sterba <>

* btrfs-progs: Documentaion: rename to .asciidocDavid Sterba2015-04-14
A few minor benefits: * editors set highliting according to the extensions * web access to the git repository (github) renders the .asciidoc files: * we can link to them from the wiki * the files are editable via browser and such editations can be submitted for merge easily Signed-off-by: David Sterba <>
