Just a quick summary on recently committed changes:
1. ZFS can now be used on amd64. Thanks goes to des and kan for testing.
2. I added sample entries to devd.conf, which show how to handle
problems reported by ZFS, like I/O failures, VDEV failures, checksum
3. It is now possible to have root file system on ZFS. You would still
need UFS for your /boot/ file system.
Location of zpool.cache file has changed from /etc/zfs/ to /boot/zfs/.
To avoid any troubles you should:
# zpool export <your pools>
# kldunload zfs
# mv /etc/zfs/zpool.cache /boot/zfs/
# make kernel
# kldload zfs
# zpool import <your pools>
If you won't do it, /etc/rc.d/zfs most likely won't mount your file
systems and you would need to do:
# zpool import -f <your pools>
by hand once. Don't forget to remove /etc/zfs/zpool.cache - it will no
longer be needed.
