7 Yup - the changelog mentions filesystem corruption issues but not

10 However, anybody running btrfs on 3.17 should be on the lookout for
11 3.17.2 or deploying patches - there was a fairly nasty readonly
12 snapshot bug in 3.17 which is tracked for the next stable kernel. The
13 good news is that the patch prevents it from happening again, and
14 btrfs-progs-3.17 (not yet in portage) repairs it.
