Why it is not sensible to use btrfs on raid devices?
Nowadays raid is just everywhere, from 'fakeraid' on AHCI to
large external arrays on iSCSI-attached storage.  Sometimes
it is nearly imposisble to _not_ use RAID, -- many servers
comes with a built-in RAID card which can't be turned off or
disabled.  And hardware raid is faster (at least in theory)
at least because it puts less load on various system busses.

To many "enterprise folks" a statement "we don't need hw raid,
we have better solution" sounds like "we're just a toy, don't
use".

Hmm?  ;)

/mjt, who always used and preferred _software_ raid due to
 multiple reasons, and never used btrfs so far.
