Looks right to me, I found Peter's patch and have it running now. After
about 6 hours my patch did eventually crash again under trinity. Btrfs has a
very old (from 2011) bug in the error handling path that trinity is
banging on.

Doing another run with Peter's patch and btrfs fixed up. The btrfs patch is
small, but not urgent enough to shove in on Sunday. I'll send for rc6
along with a few others we've queued up.
