Description

Currently, if you try to run 'zfs inherit' for quotas, it says:

'quota' property cannot be inherited
use 'zfs set quota=none' to clear

However, if your goal is to restore a received quota, that recommendation will not work. It would be helpful to also mention the -S option in the error, something like:

'quota' property cannot be inherited from parent
use 'zfs set quota=none' to clear or 'zfs inherit -S quota' to revert to received value

This ticket partners #5410, which will add the -S option to the zfs man page in the inherit section.
