For what it's worth, we've been running btrfs on our school fileservers
since September.  After a few teething problems (fixed by
increasing /proc/sys/vm/min_free_kbytes), we've had pretty much zero

The best part is we no longer need LVM on those servers and we get the
benefit of painless snapshot generation (we tried LVM snapshots and they
were *slow*).
