Is there a concise explanation of why this hasn’t been merged into -CURRENT? 

I know there are concerns that it isn’t the proper fix, but I can’t find any discussion of the
argument against it. Only people with positive reports about it fixing people’s problems.

Sorry if this keeps getting asked but I couldn’t find a good reason why not documented 
anywhere, which could form a reason not to use the patch in certain situations.

(I have about 24TB about to go into production on ZFS, so I’m particularly interested in it)
