Sorry it's not that simple. btrfs reports its faked btrfs_fs_info.bdi
to upper layer which is different from the bdi's for
btrfs_fs_info.fs_devices.devices saw by cfq.

It's the faked btrfs bdi that is named "btrfs-X" by this function:

setup_bdi():
bdi_setup_and_register(bdi, "btrfs", BDI_CAP_MAP_COPY);

It does impose difficulties to interpret btrfs mountinfo, where you
cannot directly get the block device major/minor numbers:

35 16 0:26 / /fs/sda3 rw,relatime - btrfs /dev/sda3 rw,noacl

Thanks,
Fengguang
