[New: openFATE 318392] Install into btrfs subvolume
Feature added by: Thorsten Kukuk (kukuk)

Feature #318392, revision 1
Title: Install into btrfs subvolume

Requested by: Thorsten Kukuk (kukuk)
Partner organization:

If you do a rollback of SLE12 the very first time, the original root volume is
no longer reacheable and will never be automatically removed, means we have a
disk space leak here.

The reason is, that the original installation is not a subvolume/snapshot and
thus will not show up in /.snapshots.

If we install on btrfs, and snapshots/rollback is enabled, we should instead
install into a subvolume /.snapshots/1/snapshot and make that the new root.

Business case (Partner benefit): Fix a very huge disk space leak problem.

Arvin, I think you can describe better, how the initial instannation into a
subvolume has to look like, that we see it later in /.snapshots/ ?
