Here's a ping for a patch to fix ETXTBSY races between defrag and exec, just
like the dedupe counterpart.  Unlike that one which is shared to multiple
filesystems and thus lives in Al Viro's land, it is btrfs only.

Attached: a simple tool to fragment a file, by ten O_SYNC rewrites of length
1 at random positions; racey vs concurrent writes or execs but shouldn't
damage the file otherwise.

Also attached: a preliminary patch for -progs; it yet lacks a check for the
kernel version, but to add such a check we'd need to know which kernels
actually permit ro defrag for non-root.

No man page patch -- there's no man page to be patched...
