BtrFS has full xattr support and so should be explicitly called out as a usable filesystem for Linux cross compilation. Despite the infamous parity-RAID problems, it's perfectly fine on single disks or RAID 0/1/10 configurations. It's also the default root filesystem for openSuse and SLES/SLED.

Any Linux filesystem is perfectly usable; some are just more usable than others. Anyway I think there was a reason we don't have btrfs on there, but I can't remember what it is. The page is also generally less valuable now that we auto-detect xattr support at configure time.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Website updated to remove reiserfs and add btrfs, and make it a little clearer that ext4 is still ok-ish.
