This known deadlock is documented as a UFS/NFS/VM issue. It's never been
clearly stated that it applies when using ZFS and NFS. I've been
exporting ZFS home directories from the global zone into my non-global
zones for years. I've never experienced the deadlock, but my systems
are single-user laptops, so that may not create enough contention.
A non-global zone cannot be an NFS server (without a third-party
userland NFS server implementation). Also, NFS mounting a file system
in a non-global zone that is exported from that zone's global zone is
not supported. It may seem to work, but there is a known deadlock
that can happen.
