Linux kernel 3.2 will be out early next year, and included will be some exciting changes for the btrfs file system:

“Among the noteworthy changes to Btrfs in Linux 3.2 compared to Linux 3.1 are many clean-ups and optimizations, scrubber improvements (including performance improvements), error handling fixes, and improved recovery support. There were also some log tree improvements to Btrfs, but they were backed out at the last minute and now a likely candidate for the Linux 3.3 kernel. ”
