Parent article: Supporting transactions in btrfs

Aren't transactions with rollbacks just. - Snapshot the fs. Perform operations. - Snapshot the fs (aka commit), or rollback to the previous snapshot.
If there's only one transaction at a time going on. But if there are other filesystem updates happening while the transaction runs, you don't want to roll those back because the one transaction failed.
