>From my own experience and based on what other people are saying, I think there is a random btrfs filesystem corruption problem in kernel 3.17 at least related to snapshots, therefore I decided to post using another subject to draw attention from people not concerned about btrfs send to it. More information can be found in the brtfs send posts.
