ZFS send dedup

PSARC/2009/557 ZFS send dedup was integrated yesterday. It allows to dedup zfs send|recv stream regardless if dedup is enabled or not on a sending and/or receiving side. Looks like it both pool and zfs send stream deduplication will be available in snv_128. Of course you can pull the sources and build them yourself if you want to start playing with dedupe now otherwise you will have to wait to the beginning of December when snv_128 should hit /dev Open Solaris repository.
