    I found some overlapping (or cloned) functions in
    btrfs-unstable.git/fs/btrfs, for example:

    - Declarations to apply hardware crc32c in fs/btrfs/crc32c.h:
    The same code is found in arch/x86/crypto/crc32c-intel.c

    - btrfs_wait_on_page_writeback_range() and btrfs_fdatawrite_range():
    These are clones of wait_on_page_writeback_range() and
    __filemap_fdatawrite_range() respectively, and can be removed if they
    are just exported.

    - Copies of add_to_page_cache_lru() found in compression.c and extent_io.c
    (can be replaced if it's exported)

    How about including patches to resolve these in the btrfs kernel tree
    (or patchset to be posted) ?

    In addition, there seem to be well-separated reusable routines such as
    async-thread (enhanced workqueue) and extent_map. Do you intend to
    move these into lib/ or so?

    I also tried scripts/ against btrfs, and it has detected
    45 ERRORs and 93 WARNINGs. I think it's a good opportunity to clean
    up these violations.

    With regards,
    Ryusuke Konishi
