OK, I have been playing around with this for a while now and it seems to 
work well with the workload I have tested with, mostly external file access 
via samba and nfs plus some PostgreSQL databases.

The only feature I have missed is a deferred modify when a change by zpool 
or zfs commands requires re-mounting, then just writing it and have it take 
on the next mount would save a trip to single-user.

Thanks for all the good stuff!
