As the title says, does anyone get it to work with Proxmox?

I was trying to compile the Bcachefs kernel and install it, but no luck. There was a weird issue shown in dmesg.

[  831.857334] bcachefs (89d88349-3c91-4e87-9d54-72f5376236a0): filesystem may have incompatible bkey formats; run fsck from the compat branch to fix                                                         
[  831.857342] bcachefs (89d88349-3c91-4e87-9d54-72f5376236a0): Error in recovery: cannot allocate memory (EINVAL)                                                                                             
[  831.857343] bcachefs (89d88349-3c91-4e87-9d54-72f5376236a0): error starting filesystem: EINVAL

Maybe there is a trick or something like that to make it work properly? :)
