I had a drive in a raidz2 pool fail, and wasn't able to replace it until
rebuilding the kernel (7.0beta3) with the above patch. I'm just
mentioning this as a worksforme kind of thing.
I'm rebuilding today with RELENG_7_0 and saw that the patch still
applied cleanly, so I'm assuming it's still necessary. I hope it or
something similar gets merged in. Or at least maybe the ZFS wiki could
have a list of recommended patches?
