Note that syslinux 6.02 has a known bug which corrupts the superblock 
when used on BTRFS volumes due to ldlinux.sys exceeding 64000 bytes.
It fixes booting memtest86+ with pxelinux though (see 
https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5501).

Jonathan

so it fixes one and regresses 1 and then for third one we can backport a patch
is btrfs volume issue a blocker ? if not I would say a v2 with
http://git.kernel.org/cgit/boot/syslinux/syslinux.git/commit/?h=firmware&id=4ac63b5ac412d54462e292daf65a309775bc0448
applied would be good.
atleast it will give us more testing and time to find issues before
6.03 comes out

I don't know of anyone using BTRFS volumes in production. It's not a 
blocker for me at least.
