See the relevant section of Mark's email. I also don't see how it'd require
Oracle to change anything in order to get OpenZFS into Fedora.
You were mentioning ZFS, not OpenZFS. However, it's still the same
problem. OpenZFS is CDDL which won't be accepted. The only way that
can be changed is if Oracle does something. And as long as OpenZFS is
an out-of-tree module, it won't be in Fedora.
