Please also note that Oracle cannot use code changes contributed to Illumos
and keep their source code hidden.  The developers at Oracle have been told
not to look at this project _at all_ because of this so improvements that
happen in the Illumos kernel (Major ZFS changes including a major new
compression algorithm, KVM host ability, etc) cannot go into the Solaris
kernel. Any changes that happen to Solaris have to happen independently.
