So basically you're comparing linux + ext3/4 performance with solaris
+ zfs, on the same hardware? That's not really fair, is it?
If your load is I/O-intensive enough, ext3/4 will easily win since it
doesn't have to do things like calculating checksum.
Now if you compare it to .. say ... btrfs, or zfsonlinux, it'd be more
in the same ballpark.
