Opensolaris uses a seperate zvol for crash dumps, so I gave it a try
and created a zvol.
zfs create -V 8G zroot/dump
zfs set checksum=off zroot/dump
But when dumpon executes, it tells you that dumps are not supported to
dv8t01# dumpon /dev/zvol/zroot/dump
dumpon: ioctl(DIOCSKERNELDUMP): Operation not supported
