Are you sure? "lofs" generally missors the entire tree below the mountpoint and not just the toplevel mount. # df -F zfs Filesystem size used avail capacity Mounted on export 199G 23K 126G 1% /export export/crash 199G 3.9G 126G 3% /export/crash .... # mount -F lofs /export /mnt # ls -l /mnt/crash/ total 2881499 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 568032 Jun 15 10:08 unix.0.gz ... And the manual makes that quite clear: The loopback file system device allows new, virtual file systems to be created, which provide access to existing files using alternate pathnames. Once the virtual file sys- tem is created, other file systems can be mounted within it, without affecting the original file system. However, file ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ systems which are subsequently mounted onto the original ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ file system are visible to the virtual file system, unless ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ or until the corresponding mount point in the virtual file system is covered by a file system mounted there.
