If the requirement in the button is essential - you can write / order a simple plugin that will put that button in the needed place. see https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Web+Item+Plugin+Module for details

What version of JIRA did you had and where was this button positioned?

From the top of my head, JIRA 3 had this on the screen, but ever since JIRA 4.1 the Create Subtask is on the More Actions menu.

Since a parent issue has to be selected, the "more action" "create sub-task" makes sense. But it would be helpful, to have a keyboard shortcut for it.
