In practice I'm not sure anyone will ever tune it, but that's ok I think.

Normally we don't change existing tests lest new failures look like regressions
when they aren't, but hey, "btrfs is an experimental filesystem" so maybe it's
ok in this case.  ;)  At some point when things are settled down, we wouldn't
want to make a change like this.  But for now it doesn't bother me.

Looks ok to me:
