Sun has opened internal CR 6859997. It is now in Dispatched state

CR 6859997 has recently been fixed in Nevada. This fix will also be
in Solaris 10 Update 9. This fix speeds up the sequential prefetch
pattern described in this CR without slowing down other prefetch
patterns. Some kstats have also been added to help improve the
observability of ZFS file prefetching.
Excellent. What level of read improvement are you seeing? Is the
prefetch rate improved, or does the fix simply avoid losing the prefetch?
This fix avoids using a prefetch stream when it is no longer valid.
BTW, ZFS prefetch appears to work well for most prefetch patterns. But
this CR found a pattern that should have worked well but did not.
