Keep GZ and NGZs in sync
This release has changes to ZFS and kernel/libc interactions that mean child zones will not work with global zones upgraded to a8 until they are brought in sync to a8 themselves.
The list of changes is below...
There have been a lot of fixes and changes in the last few releases so it would help if people could confirm bugs they've reported to see if they're fixed or still apply to a7 and, as always, please bang on it and report new issues on bugs.openindiana.org.
