So you were not talking about the 'fs/crypto' that was merged in 4.6?

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean.

If it's the hot-spare and auto-replace feature, I've expressed my stance
in http://marc.info/?l=linux-btrfs&m=146252575330106, there hasn't
been any change. IMO the hot-spare feature makes most sense with the
raid56, which is stuck where it is, so we need to get it working first.

Lack of reply usually means lack of time (which I would not spend on
flaming but evaluation and review).
