Change request accepted for a different block allocator.
I wrote some days ago about the need for an different ZFS block allocator to enable the usage of an ZFS pool for an MAID. After thinking a little bit longer about it, i wrote an change request for it. The change request “67422636 - Disk activation based allocator for blocks in ZFS” is now in the accepted state. This doesn´t already mean that this CR will make it into Opensolaris, but at least it says it isn´t an obviously dumb idea and the engineering will think about it.
