This patch is fine, because we want to avoid settings UUIDs on btrfs
subvolumes.

However I'm not convinced that this means my statement before about
set_uuid should take a Mountable instead of a Device is wrong.  It
could still be changed to take a Mountable, and either we'd have to
document that setting UUID on a btrfs subvolume makes no sense, or we
could have set_uuid refuse to work on a subvolume (only on the "main"
btrfs subvolume, if there is such a thing).

Anyway, ACK.

Rich.
