I got a minute to look at this today. It doesn't fallback to the normal
ioctl handler. Since we have ->unlocked_ioctl defined, it checks the
hard-coded compat tables and then fails with -ENOTTY.

Fortunately, the fix is simple. The default stanza of that switch
statement in btrfs_compat_ioctl needs to be removed. Then it just
works. I'll post a fix momentarily.
