I wonder if there would be any resilience (and possibly performance) advantage to having zfs directly access the hard drives (which, being old and bought off ebay, I don't quite trust) rather than go through cgd. 

To be honest about it, I don't remember if I tested in that direction.
It would be simple enough to try.  You just might have the same problem
with missing IOCTLs that keeps swapping from working.
