Redhat was never a major contributor to btrfs. The folks who are on btrfs
like it and will continue fund its development. We might see a btrfs v2
similar to ext3 and ext4. But only time will tell. Please let's not equate
red hat with upstream kernel development. There are a lot of us who are
unrelated to red hat doing it as well.
