A workaround is to disable the ZIL (vfs.zfs.zil_disable="1"), if you
can afford that on the system in question. It will break the
durability of fsync(), but retain it's write barrier semantics.
Btw, does anyone have a good grasp of the status of this bug? I have
seen vague referenced to it being a memory related deadlock for
example, but that's about it. Is the cause known but difficult to fix,
or just unknown?
