I've tried to merge respective Illumos patches to FreeBSD when they got
to Illumos, but that appeared to be problematic due to total mess of
kernel and user-space locking primitives and types in ZFS headers,
additionally complicated by FreeBSD shims. After spending there several
days I gave up.
I haven't checked myself, but I heard that Linux took different approach
and just reimplemented it completely in different primitives, possibly
to avoid the same kind of problems. If I had time for second try, I'd
try this way.
