Worst case would be that ZFS is only available as LKM to keep CDDL code
out of the kernel source tree.

AFAIK FreeBSD got quite a bit further with the ZFS integration.

Sure. If you have sparc64 hardware, you are used to Solaris and you are
already running Solaris, why switch to an other OS if there is no
immediate need? Never change a runing system! :-)
Especially as sparc64 hardware is designed to run Solaris and Solaris
is designed to run on sparc64 hardware.
