Sorry, looks like I hit send too soon that time. The async-thread code
is very self contained, and was intended for generic use. Pushing that
into lib is probably a good idea.

The extent_map and extent_buffer code was also intended for generic use.
It needs some love and care (making it work for blocksize != pagesize)
before I'd suggest moving it out of fs/btrfs.
