Description

ztest uses fixed file descriptors to communicate with child processes. This can cause problems if ztest is executed with those file descriptors already open (as they may be when executed from certain shell scripts in testing frameworks). This was fixed in zfsonlinux, the patch can be ported to illumos-gate.
