btrfs-progs version 5.4 have been released.

The new checksum algorithms support will be one release earlier than in kernel
to make it easier to test, same for the raid1c34 feature. Otherwise, there are
some nice improvements in check and image.


  * support new hash algorithms (kernel 5.5):
    * mkfs.btrfs and btrfs-convert with --csum, crc32c, xxhash, sha256, blake2
  * mkfs: support new raid1c3 and raid1c4 block group profiles (kernel 5.5)
  * check:
    * --repair delays start with a warning, can be skipped using --force
    * enhanced detetion of inode types from partial data, more options for
  * receive: fix quiet option
  * image: speed up chunk loading
  * fi usage:
    * sort devices by id
    * print ratio of used/total per block group type
  * rescue zero-log: reset the log pointers directly, avoid reading some other
    potentially damaged structures
  * new make target install-static to install only static binaries/libraries
  * other
    * docs updates
    * new tests
    * cleanups and refactoring
