	Sweeping bugs under the rug is not what I plan on doing; I’m marking these as expected failures, as opposed to having them continually panic a machine. Once a ZFS dev takes a look at the issue and resolves them, then the ZFS dev can remove the “bail” calls I’m adding to the testcases.

PS FWIW the panics are recent. As I stated in the first bug, it didn’t occur on 10.0-RELEASE.
