I'm not sure if I'm facing the same issue as you and/or Tommy, but it 
seems very similar.

When I experience the problem, it hangs everything that is trying to do 
zfs I/O.  I just reproduced it again a few minutes ago.  I kick off a 
zfs send | zfs recv, and as soon as a large zvol stream is completed and 
it moves onto the next stream, all I/O stops.  I agree it seems to be 
some kind of locking issue, possibly related to zfs buffers (judging 
from the stack trace).  I can let the system run for days and as long as 
I don't run a send|recv, it's fine.  Seems like it's caused by something 
in the send/recv not freeing a lock.

I'd be happy to provide anything I can to help track this down.  It's 
really becoming quite frustrating and it's preventing me from deploying 
this system into my environment.
