This is zfs-fuse "feature". Native zfs, according to available in the
net benchmarks and to my experience, are very fast. I don't understand
how they manage to do compression on the fly, checksum computation and
verification and at the same time throughput and seek time better than
that of ext3 on the same hardware.
