comment Swapon failed: Invalid argument on a Linux system with Btrfs filesystem
And just a moment ago I decided to avoid using losetup mapping. My system got stuck after starting using swap through losetup on btrfs (with pre-allocated file). Maybe it interfere somehow with buffers and caches. I.e. system wants to free memory and swaps something out, but this results in increasing cache for the same size. Though I'm not sure, I'd avoid that.

comment Swapon failed: Invalid argument on a Linux system with Btrfs filesystem
I came to the same solution, but I have concerns about correctness of such approach. Ex. with loop dev I cane work around holes check created with truncate -s 4G swapfile_holes.img. I.e. the reason why swapon checks for something is that swapfile should fulfill some requirements for reasonable performance.

comment How to synchronize the home folder between multiple computers?
I like this idea because I'm in control what part of files within garbage that I have in my home will be shared. The only question is how to manage commits. i.e. some files should go into initial commit and then reflect changes to show that they based on system /etc/skel.
