Normally true but for ZFS, it's a little bit special: the ZFS code is
based on the code that sun/Oracle publishes as GPLv2+ or GPLv3+. As long
as the code is officially published on Oracle or Sun website, is under
GPLv2+ or GPLv3+ and touches only ZFS files, it's fine from legal
standpoint to incorporate it.
