The situation is Linux is such that btrfs sectorsize must be same as
PAGE_SIZE, otherwise the Linux btrfs driver won't work. AFAIK there are
only few architectures where PAGE_SIZE is not 4 KiB. btrfs filesystems
created there cannot be mounted on systems with PAGE_SIZE = 4 KiB.

I don't know if U-Boot is used on non 4KiB PAGE_SIZE boards. If it is,
it should be solved, but I would check that before complicating the
code.
