Produced at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Ported by Brian Behlendorf

The majority of the code in the Native ZFS for Linux port comes from OpenSolaris which has been released under the terms of the CDDL open source license. This includes the core ZFS code, libavl, libnvpair, libefi, libunicode, and libutil. The original OpenSolaris source can be downloaded from:

Files which do not originate from OpenSolaris are noted in the file header and attributed properly. These exceptions include, but are not limited to, the vdev_disk.c and zvol.c implementation which are licensed under the CDDL.

The zpios test code is originally derived from the Lustre pios test code which is licensed under the GPL. As such the heavily modified zpios kernel test code also remains licensed under the GPL.
