I am going to rear my head again and say that a great many people would
probably want a thin-provisioning that does exactly that ;-).
I mean you have it designed for auto-extension but there are also many
people that do not want to auto-extend and just share available
resources more flexibly.
For those people safety around 100% fullness boundary becomes more
I don't really think there is another solution for that.
I don't think BTRFS is really a good solution for that.
So what alternatives are there, Zdenek? LVM is really the only thing
that feels "good" to us.
Are there structural design inhibitions that would really prevent this
thing from ever arising?
