Is this backwards compatible with the LTS branch? btrfs tends to break things in that regard

I believe so, btrfs-progs is supposed to be more or less kernel independent. If there is a feature that's not supported by the kernel, the command just exits with an error.

Testing building 4.7 from source and using it with a loop device I didn't see any issues making and mounting a btrfs filesystem and running a few commands on it. If you want a better answer, I can search/ask on the mailing list.

Yeah I mean it'd it invalid ioctl anyway if it derps on the kernel driver.
Well as long as it can still mount a local btrfs system that's fine with me, its only really in for the future Docker packaging tbqh
