The native port of ZFS from OpenSolaris[1] appears to be pretty stable
although I've not used it (I use btrfs instead). Definitely better than
any FUSE based system, though.

It's supposedly a first-class citizen in the new Ubuntu, who have
controversially decided to build and distribute the CDDL licensed module
directly with the kernel[2].
