+1.  I'm also worried if this would bring more Linuxish bits into our
kernel (cf. LinuxKPI).  Also, I thought that ZFS was never really native
to Linux but implemented through SPL (Solaris Porting Layer), and Linux'
VFS is not ARC-aware unlike Solaris and FreeBSD.

It would be quite upsetting to see ZFS as we know it in FreeBSD become
pessimized because of those things. :-(
