Btrfs at the same time? It seems weird to me that adding a feature
btrfs doesn't support DAX. only ext2, ext4, XFS and FUSE have DAX support.
If you think about it, btrfs and DAX are diametrically opposite things.
DAX is about giving raw access to the hardware. btrfs is about offering
extra value (RAID, checksums, ...), none of which can be done if the
filesystem isn't in the read/write path.
That's why there's no DAX support in btrfs. If you want DAX, you have
to give up all the features you like in btrfs. So you may as well use
a different filesystem.
