ZFS being ported to the FreeBSD kernel

These last few days Pawel Dawidek has been working on porting ZFS to the FreeBSD kernel.

And he's made tremendous progress! He can already mount filesystems, list directories, create files/directories, change permissions.. The best of all, he did that in only 10 days!

Wow, now that's impressive.

As a FreeBSD user, I should say that most impressive is that he's using FreeBSD's advanced features; in particular GEOM, which will permit a lot of flexibility for other filesystems.
Hmm ... and Dtrace is progressing very well on FreeBSD too.
