Resetting the UUID on btrfs isn't a quick-and-easy thing - you have to
walk the entire tree and change every object. We've got a bad-hack in
meego that uses btrfs-debug-tree and changes the UUID while it runs
the entire tree, but it's ugly as hell.

You shouldn't clone btrfs really, just make a new filesystem.
