The zfs code in illumos should be the same (or close) to the one ins ZFS 
for Linux, so they should be pretty compatible, and stay that way 
(unlike, of course, with the Solaris flavour).
So most of the improvement should come from the superior USB support in 

Another thing I do like much in ZoL is the ability to update it 
independantly from the kernel.
