btrfsck is used to check and optionally repair of a Btrfs filesystem.
Now, it can only be run on an unmounted FS. Considering it is not
well-tested in real-life situations yet. if you have a broken Btrfs
filesystem, btrfsck may not repair but cause aditional damages.
<device> is the device file where the filesystem is stored.
specify which superblock copy that you want to use.
try to repair the filesystem.
create a new CRC tree.
create a new extent tree.
btrfsck will return 0 exit code if no error happened. Other exit
code means some problems happened.
