As I said, the chmod/chown case *should* be fine today. Deduplication in
other cases (file renames, but also similar/identical files back up from
different hosts) are harder. Some deduplication patches to btrfs were
discussed in January, it's not at all clear when they'll make their way into
released kernels (+ userspace tools), but I expect it to take a year or two
until it has become readyl for production.
All I can say is I've tried and used a lot of distributions, but
nothing comes close to Debian.
