I don't recompiled the kernel modules, I simply tried the modules which was binary shipped with the base system. So I will try to recompile the modules and hope that there will be a way to get it working. Or is there an alternativ filesystem which has modern design and would be usable on much platforms? So for ZFS there is support in FreeBSD, Linux and I think read only support on Windows. So I thought it would be a good choice.
