Bug ID: 227407
           Summary: [feature request] make zfs "setuid" property act on
                    dirs as well as files
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.1-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern

Currently the zfs filesystem's "setuid" property is limited to files - it has
no effect on directories within a zfs dataset. (crossref: man page error, bug

setuid on directories is extremely useful in many scenarios, and for UFS at
least is the standard way on FreeBSD to mandate+enforce ownership (including
ownership inheritance on new objects) within a file system or directory path.

Lacking zfs setuid support on directories, there is no way to achieve this
AFAIK for file systems/directory paths on zfs.

Can the setuid property be enhanced for zfs, so that it does permit
ownership/inheritance control on directories as well?
