If you have some patches provided with some good usable testing (lvm2 test
suite) - it could be possibly merged.
On the other hand helping/suggesting users to use Btrfs on top of lvm2 has
also its logical 'question' marks. Since btrfs users should probably be
avoiding placing 'another' layer between real hw - when btrfs should be mostly
capable handling lvm2 features in its 'very own' way. Each layer has it's own
measurable costs. And yeah we do not want to be involved into btrfs related
recovery cases, as we simply never understood its handling of attached disks.
