CVS revisions are replicated from the cvs2svn[1] so backward
compatibility isn't broken for those that rely on programs like csup(1)
or cvsup(1) from ports.

If you can spare another ~500MB of disk space to use svn instead then I
would highly recommend it as benefits of using svn[2] to track sources
are much more than that of csup(1) or cvsup(1).

Anyway, not to cut you short but if your using 8.2-STABLE and YES...
that's "8.2-STABLE" meaning it is the stable branch after the
8.2-RELEASE! then you can safely checkout the sources from [3] and
ZFSv28 has already been merged no patching necessary.

For those that believe it really is "8-STABLE" sorry but that could
designate that branch anyway from 8.0 -> 8.3 and after. You should at
least have the diligence to specify branch at what period of release as
that is pertinent to where the sources were at that given time.
