 Also my change has a patch in btrfs-tools. It will be nice if you can

The patch submission process and coding style is the same for userspace
tools. The common practice is to prefix the subject of patch that
modifies userspace tools with 'btrfs-progs:'.

Thank you very much Ben :)

I did go though the links send by you  got the complete details for
sending the kernel component.

Also my change has a patch in btrfs-tools. It will be nice if you can
share the process for submitting that patch also.

 Hi,

 I have used the btrfs filesystem in one of my projects and I have
 added a small feature to it. I feel that the same feature will be
 useful for others too. Hence I would like to contribute the same to
 open source.

 Excellent!

 If everything works fine and this feature is not already added by
 somebody else, this will be my first contribution to the opensource 
 I am excited to join the huge family of opensource :)

 Please help me with a precise steps to do the same.

 In general the way to contribute is to send a patch for review. You
 should have a look at the code style guidelines[1] and patch submission
 guidelines[2] in the kernel tree. For nontrivial changes the patch
 should be accompanied by a cover letter describing the change and the
 motivations for any non-obvious design decisions.

 It is possible that your change is acceptable as-is. More likely,
 however, is that there will be some discussion and requests for
 changes. Eventually the review process will produce a merge-worthy
 patch. The first step, however, is sending something concrete for
 community review.

 Cheers,

 - Ben
