Observed as a large delay when --mixed filesystem is filled up.
Test example:
1. create tiny --mixed FS:
   $ dd if=/dev/zero of=2G.img seek=$((2048 * 1024 * 1024 - 1)) count=1 bs=1
   $ mkfs.btrfs --mixed 2G.img
   $ mount -oloop 2G.img /mnt/ut/
2. Try to fill it up:
   $ dd if=/dev/urandom of=10M.file bs=10240 count=1024
   $ seq 1 256 | while read file_no; do echo $file_no; time cp 10M.file ${file_no}.copy; done

Up to '200.copy' it goes fast, but when disk fills-up each -ENOSPC
message takes 3 seconds to pop-up _every_ ENOSPC (and in usermode linux
it's even more: 30-60 seconds!). (Maybe, time depends on kernel's timer resolution).

No IO, no CPU load, just rescheduling. Some debugging revealed busy spinning
in shrink_delalloc.
