Working on it :)
But it was Thunderbird, getting real plain text emails with outlook is
impossible. Corruption I think came from the copy-paste from the Mac bash
terminal... Tabs get replaced by spacers.

Host-managed is still a thing, getting bigger. But host-aware never really
gained a lot of traction due to, I think, the potentially very weird performance
profile they can get into (Hmmm... similar to recent drive-managed noise...)

No worries, we will fix the mess (sorry we hit you again !).
Also, Naohiro just posted btrfs zone support v7 !! Luckily, we can get that into

The patch was space corrupted, but could you still try it ? Did it solve your
problem ? I can recend it (minus space corruption) if needed.
