 Thanks, I created a new anaconda btrfs test based on your test case:

 where I assumed that only / was formatted as btrfs by anaconda defaults,
 but it surely need be confirmed by the developers. Adding Josef to the cc
 list. Josef, can you please clarify what's the default filesystem for
 /boot on Fedora 16? Also are there any other changes on anaconda when
 making btrfs as the default comparing with previous lvm defaults? Thanks.
