No. Red Hat has *zero* engineers that work on Btrfs. That's the real
reason for this.

If Red Hat *really* wanted it, they would have got someone to work on
it specifically to accelerate the stabilization of the filesystem code
for the next RHEL. That *never* happened since Josef Bacik left Red
Hat for Facebook years ago. Josef still works on Btrfs there, just for
Facebook instead of Red Hat.
