Subject: [PATCH] Btrfs-progs: make btrfsctl return values like everybody else
Date: Tue, 2 Feb 2010 09:52:53 -0500
Message-ID: <20100202145252.GA15957@localhost.localdomain> (raw)

This patch makes btrfsctl return 0 for success and 1 for failure, which is the
behavior of all other userspace applications.  Thanks,
