However, btrfs uses much more memory than i.e. ext3.
So your system may freeze/hang (out-of-memory killer) after a few days, 
if your memory is now used in ~20 MB or more (will also depend on the 
size of the btrfs filesystem and so on).
So, use with care.

If it's mentioned on linuxwireless.org, than it should work.
