    ZFS Importing a ZFS-on-Linux pool to FreeBSD

    I've got a large raidz2 pool created under ZFS On Linux that I'd like to import to FreeBSD. I've been told that it is possible as long as the enabled options from ZOL are available under FreeBSD. I don't really know what is available though, and I couldn't find anything concise enough to...
