Are there others getting errors like $SUBJECT, described in more detail
at https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112561

If my theory is correct, workloads involving lots of snapshots, such as
Ceph OSDs, might run into it quite often.

Although I could recover from a few such metadata corruptions by hand,
when btrfs check --repair couldn't fix it, it's quite cumbersome.  I
wonder if a change like this, made conditional on a mount option, would
be considered appropriate.  I considered making it conditional on -o
recovery, but ended up just making it unconditional for my own temporary
use.


As for fixing metadata corruption by hand, I've been thinking it might
be useful to have some tool to help navigate and change metadata,
extract files and whatnot, much like debugfs for ext* filesystems.
Would others find it useful?  Is anyone else already working on such a
thing?
