Description of problem:
anaconda seems not provide any way to create btrfs filesystem. I've tried good old btrfs kernel option and still no luck.
I had to create it manually which moves us back to f14 or so.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot f17 install media with default kernel options
2. create partition/lv trough anaconda
3. create btrfs filesystem on that volume trough anaconda
combo box does not provide option btrfs
combo box should provide option btrfs
Sounds like the btrfs tools are not in the image.

As of now, the only way to create btrfs filesystems/volumes is with kickstart. The good news is that you can create subvolumes and specify RAID levels. The bad news is that it is not available in the interactive installer.
Ahh. Well. A regression in Anaconda's ability to do this via the interactive installer is annoying and will make my life a lot more difficult. :-/
I assume, of course, that Anaconda will get full support in the interactive installer for Fedora 18.
