My guess is that if you were Wasabi Systems shipping NetBSD/ZFS- based
products, then you would be a probable target for a cease and desist
order pending a licensing agreement with NetApp (of course, that's
certainly not a specific problem anymore). However, I think the worst
case for NetBSD would be a requirement to remove any sun-sourced,
infringing code.

Given this:
it sounds like there is no such thing. Besides, software patents are not
allowed anyway.

Well, in Europe may be not, but in the US, read the history of BSD, and the birth of BSDLite. GIF also is a good example.

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?

We want to change as least code as possible in ZFS. Because it makes later updates much easier for us.
