(cc: xfs list)

Are you thinking of writing new tests, or doing more formal testing
with the existing testsuite?  Both would be useful.

In particular, any time there's a bugfix, a regression test is helpful.
Generic new tests of btrfs functionality would be good, too.

I would suggest starting with a couple new tests, and cc: the xfs list
for review.  In the course of the review you'll get a sense of the various
conventions used in xfstests, etc.

Simply running xfstests over various btrfs configurations would also
be useful, to be sure any regressions caught by existing tests don't go
