Linux Employees of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have ported Sun's/Oracle's ZFS natively to Linux. Linux already had a ZFS port in userspace via FUSE, since license incompatibilities between the CDDL and GPL prevent ZFS from becoming part of the Linux kernel. This project solves the licensing issue by distributing ZFS as a separate kernel module users will have to download and build for themselves.

No, that link is the GRUB support for ZFS, which will yield read-only support for ZFS and is GPLv2. Surely, code can be taken from there to implement mainline- kernel ZFS which is free from license brouhaha.

Ahh yes sorry.
I don't know how the hell I missed that lol.

Interesting though. I'd forgotten that GRUB was GPL.
