btrfs was merged with mainline kernel just a few weeks ago and file format is 
way from stable. Currently I'm playing with it on my other SD partition, but I 
don't think adding boot support from it is needed just yet.

[ 4062.175000] Btrfs loaded
[ 4229.430000] device fsid a64c65b17fac7381-5edd06158f8ceaab <6>devid 1 
transid 14 /dev/mmcblk0p3
[ 4229.435000] btrfs: use compression

For now you can get a new stable kernel (2.6.29_rc2), or andy-tracking if you 
want to play with it. You will also need btrfs-progs-0.18 (I'm not sure if OE 
based distros or debian provide it).
