btrfs: add support for 4-copy replication (raid1c4)
Add new block group profile to store 4 copies in a simliar way that current RAID1 does. The profile attributes and constraints are defined in the raid table and used by the same code that already handles the 2- and 3-copy RAID1. The minimum number of devices is 4, the maximum number of devices/chunks that can be lost/damaged is 3. There is no comparable traditional RAID level, the profile is added for future needs to accompany triple-parity and beyond. Signed-off-by: David Sterba <firstname.lastname@example.org>
