The following error can happen if a file which is currently open, has been deleted, this is not mention in the error message ZFS-8000-8A. And could result in people wasting time trying to fix an issues which does not exist.
I suggest the message is updated, but also zfs should report the file has been deleted but still in use (if it should report it at all).

I have set this to Priority Immediate so at least the error message is updated, and when this is fixed i.e. not reported any more then, message can be updated.

Another example is here http://unixetc.co.uk/2012/01/22/zfs-corruption-persists-in-unlinked-files/

pool: abc
state: ONLINE
status: One or more devices has experienced an error resulting in data
corruption. Applications may be affected.
action: Restore the file in question if possible. Otherwise restore the
entire pool from backup.
