Why do you need Linux on your filer ? There's already number of ZFS filers on market and if you want it Oracle will happily sell you one running Solaris.

It'd be awesome to see native implementation of ZFS in Oracle's own UEK but reality is that Oracle's Linux support revenue is likely next to nothing and it's not financially viable to invest single cent into it unless ZFS in kernel is required for Oracle's own products running on Oracle Linux, and it's most certainly not the case.
