ZFSonLinux is very nearly production ready, and I'm preparing to deploy 
it soon on a home server.  Just a few minor niceties missing for now, 
but all the essential features are in place, and the bugs are only 
trickling in and nothing major's come up in a while.

I'd certainly not trust it to a ~100TB multi server multi SAN 
environment yet, but soon~  zvol has been there from zfs for a while, so 
if you want xfs on ZFS in your environment, that's the closest I'd trust 
it in production yet.
