I think it is unlikely to be a hardware problem. While I haven't run any
destructive testing on the ZFS pool, the fact that it can be read without
error, combined with ECC throughout the system and the panic always happen-
ing on the first write, makes me think that it is a software issue in ZFS.
When I do:
zpool export data; zpool remove data da0
I get a "No such pool: data". I then re-imported the pool and did:
zpool offline data da0; zpool export data; zpool import data
After doing that, I can write to the pool without a panic. But once I
online the log device and do any writes, I get the panic again.
As I mentioned, I have this data replicated elsewere, so I can exper-
iment with the pool if it will help track down this issue.
