extent-based deduplicator for file systems

Duperemove is a tool for finding duplicated extents and submitting them for deduplication. When given a list of files it will hash their contents on a block by block basis and compare those hashes to each other, finding and categorizing extents that match each other. . On BTRFS and, experimentally, XFS, it can then reflink such extents in a race-free way. Unlike hardlink-based solutions, affected files appear independent in any way other than reduced disk space used.
