I think getting tools/regression/zfs working first would be a better idea 
(which means that ZFS developers will need to go debug/fix the issue noted in 
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=191574 ). I’ll go ahead and 
commit my fixes to head from my github fork so it runs.

Alan also suggested against integrating the test suite as-is, because as he 
said, "Remember, don't run these tests on a production system.  They WILL cause 
panics and deadlocks, and they may cause data loss too.”
