[Gluster-users] ZFS (zfsonlinux) xattr=sa mode will corrupt symlinks

For anyone out there running gluster on top of ZFS, I ran across a bug in
zfsonlinux's SA code that causes symlinks that have a target path greater than
16 characters to get corrupted as xattr data gets added to the inode.
Obviously, this doesn't play nice with gluster.


There's a simple patch (workaround) that essentially forces symlinks to use
the normal 'dir' style xattr format while they go back and fix the underlying
SA code.

Just wanted folks to know.
