I don't know what you mean by "nested zfs filesystems" -- do you mean a
zpool within a zvol?  That has been unsupported for a long time, IIRC.  And
I'm not sure what else "nested filesystems" would be, since having (e.g.)
separate zfs filesystems for /usr and /usr/ports is so common that surely
it has already been tested...
