i think this is the problem, your driver seems to work for i386 only,
but at the moment i'm not experienced enough to be able to fix this and
maybe there is some more work to do to get it running under amd64. so i
would really appreciate it if you or someone else could help me here :)

i can test it for you and hopefully i will be able to post some
backtraces and debug info if i have set up some solution to my core
dumping problem under zfs root.
