  If you create an unmounted empty filesystem with a reservation to
  prevent the zpool from filling up, it gives you behavior similar to
  ufs's reserved blocks.  I reserve 5-10% to make sure the system doesn't
  become completely unusable:

    root# zfs create -o reservation=50G -o mountpoint=none rpool/reservation
