So what would you propose for Ubuntu?  Our default install doesn't
break things up like that.  Perhaps just for Ubuntu core?

That's what the previous UDS sessions discussed.  AFAICT from that

recovered from a power off btrfs bug myself, so I'm very happy to hear
they have a better test setup to reproduce those issues.
