It will a bit.  Your OSD interface doesn't have callbacks.  While you 
must have made ZFS not need them, I moved the other direction, adding 
callbacks for the jail_set and jail_get system calls, as well as the 
create and destroy callbacks that exist currently.  This isn't a 
problem, as long as you don't mind me keeping the prison services 
interface around, or re-introducing it.  The other alternative would be 
to add some generic callback capability to OSD, but I haven't given that 
any thought yet.

Other than that, I don't think ZFS changes should affect anything that's 
not easily handled.
