    Btrfs: change how we mount subvolumes · 73f73415

    This work is in preperation for being able to set a different root as the
    default mounting root.
    There is currently a problem with how we mount subvolumes.  We cannot currently
    mount a subvolume of a subvolume, you can only mount subvolumes/snapshots of the
    default subvolume.  So say you take a snapshot of the default subvolume and call
    it snap1, and then take a snapshot of snap1 and call it snap2, so now you have
    as your available volumes.  Currently you can only mount / and /snap1,
    you cannot mount /snap1/snap2.  To fix this problem instead of passing
    subvolid=<name> you must pass in subvolid=<treeid>, where <treeid> is
    the tree id that gets spit out via the subvolume listing you get from
    the subvolume listing patches (btrfs filesystem list).  This allows us
    to mount /, /snap1 and /snap1/snap2 as the root volume.
    In addition to the above, we also now read the default dir item in the
    tree root to get the root key that it points to.  For now this just
    points at what has always been the default subvolme, but later on I plan
    to change it to point at whatever root you want to be the new default
    root, so you can just set the default mount and not have to mount with
    -o subvolid=<treeid>.  I tested this out with the above scenario and it
    worked perfectly.  Thanks,
    mount -o subvol operates inside the selected subvolid.  For example:
    mount -o subvol=snap1,subvolid=256 /dev/xxx /mnt
    /mnt will have the snap1 directory for the subvolume with id
    mount -o subvol=snap /dev/xxx /mnt
    /mnt will be the snap directory of whatever the default subvolume
