  I afraid, that after real hardware failure (like real HDD death,
not these pseudo-broken-hardware situations, when HDDs is perfectly
alive and in good condition), all data will be lost. I could restore
data from remains of FFS by hands (format is straightforward and
well-known), but ZFS is different story...

 And all these messages about panics after pool import... Yes, it
could be result of REAL hardware problems, but I want to have some
hope to restore some of the data after such crashes.

 Yes, backups is solution, but I don't have money to buy (reliable)
hardware to backup 4Tb of data :(

 I attended "Solaris internals" 5-days training four years ago (when I
worked for Sun Microsystems), and instructor says same words...
