This should be reported as a bug. Probably against initramfs-tools.

It may already be reported. See #602254
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=602254
Looks like it's a module dependency issue, not a bug in the initramfs
generator.

Note: btrfs is currently still a new and experimental filesystem,
so you should probably not use it for critical uses just yet. In
practice it's working fairly well (I've had my /home on it for six
months without incident, but there have been bugs with e.g. dpkg
575891 which caused loss of files under /var/lib/dpkg/info on
btrfs filesystems, noticed in build chroots). So there may be other
buggy software which behaves badly on btrfs.


Regards,
Roger

Do you have a separate "/boot" partition? Is its filesystem btrfs too?
