Okay, it can be no more than a voyage back in time to the
aforementioned episode – so, is there any estimation as to the
percentage of Sun code in today's NetBSD ZFS port?
What does that have to do with anything? It could be 100% NetBSD
code and that wouldn't change anything as far as patents.
I am not sure about this. I think you can't patent a concept, but you
could patent an implementation. For example, in the electronics field,
you maybe can patent a type of high-quality oscillator, but you cannot
claim any property on a different implementation achieving the same
goal. If you can code from scratch a FS with the same functionalities
as ZFS, I don't figure out how you could be liable to patent suing.
