Linux 4.14 supports Zstd as compression algorithm for btrfs. Unfortunately GRUB doesn't support this configuration, meaning that is not possible to have a Zstd compressed root without a separate /boot partition.

As GRUB supports the other btrfs compression algorithms, it would really make sense to support Zstd too.
