But at some point, presumably after a fix is in place, since the damaged snapshots aren't currently always deletable, if the fix only prevents new damage from occurring and doesn't provide a way to fix the damaged ones, then mkfs would be the only way to do so. With the damage limited to those snapshots and not spreading to normal writable snapshots or the working copy, dropping everything to do that mkfs isn't urgent, but it (the mkfs) will need to be done at some point to clear the undeletable snapshots, again, assuming the fix doesn't provide a way to get rid of them (the currently undeletable snapshots).
What happens if "btrfs property set" is used to (attempt to) promote the snapshot from read-only to read-write? Can the damaged snapshot then be subjected to scrub of btrfsck?
