Some prefer to know what's going on in the system. Every other or
so kernel release there are some new happy kthreads, such as

24930 ? S 0:00 \_ [btrfs-endio-1]
24931 ? S 0:00 \_ [btrfs-endio-met]
24932 ? S 0:00 \_ [btrfs-endio-met]
24933 ? S 0:00 \_ [btrfs-endio-wri]
24934 ? S 0:00 \_ [btrfs-freespace]

at which point one is curious to find out the rest of the met and why
there are two of them. If expanded one actually sees they are different
kthreads (rather than just per-cpu instances for a WQ, for example)

$ grep Name /proc/{29431,29432}/stat*
/proc/29431/status:Name: btrfs-endio-meta-1
/proc/29432/status:Name: btrfs-endio-meta-write-1

That's all.
