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.

what happened to the lawsuit

What ever happened to the lawsuit between Sun and NetApp (I think it was them) over who actually owned the rights to ZFS? The lawsuit was the main reason why I figured ZFS would never make it into the kernel.
