Well, given that ARM processors use a completely different ISA (ie.
they're not x86-compatible), OpenSolaris won't run on them currently.

Are they feasible targets for zfs?
The N610N that I have (BCM3302, 300MHz, 64MB) isn't even powerful
enough to saturate either the gigabit wired or 802.11n wireless. It
only goes about 25Mbps.
Last time I test on EEPC 2G's Celeron, zfs is slow to the point of
unusable. Will it be usable enough on most ARMs?
If you'd like to do the port....
I can't say as to the entire Atom line of stuff, but I've found the
Atoms are OK for desktop use, and not anywhere powerful enough for even
a basic NAS server. The demands of wire-speed Gigabit, ZFS, and
encryption/compression are hard on the little Atom guys. Plus, it seems
to be hard to find an Atom motherboard which supports more than 2GB of
RAM, which is a serious problem.
