Hi, Pawel. Thanks for the great work!

1. I have an yesterday's CURRENT and I get a `kmem_map too small`
panic when try to copy /usr/src to ZFS partition with enabled
compression. (I have 512M of RAM)

2. I've tried snapshots. Seems that all work good. I have one
question: .zfs directory should be invisible? I can `cd .zfs`
and see it's content, but may be .zfs should be visible like
an ufs's .snap?

WBR, Andrey V. Elsukov
