First, thank you for working on this.  I must admit I am quite impressed
by the amount of work you've achieved this last months, you are really a
coding machine.  I don't say others have done less, but maybe I am
simply not smart enough to estimate their work.

I don't know much about ZFS, but Sun states this is a "128 bits"
filesystem.  How will you handle this in regards to the FreeBSD
kernel interface that is already struggling to be 64 bits
compliant ?  (I'm stating this based on this URL [1], but maybe
it's not fully up-to-date.)

Thank you.
