zfs on freebsd is ok. It is only the iSCSI implementation that sucks.
zfs on linux is not worthy for storage since there is no mainline
kernel implementation at the moment and due to the licens I don't see
any in the near future.

This is possible. I have already started porting of the nexenta plugin.
The biggest issue was porting nexenta_request to use ssh instead but
this is currently working. Only real issue is that it requires
certificate login as root which is normally not allowed in the solaris
world but using a normal user account requires creating this account
both local and remote, creating a local certificate, exporting this
certificate using ssh-copy-id to the storage, install sudo remote, and
add the remote user to sudo with option NOPASSWD:. Therefore I think I
will stick to using certificate based root login as this seems less
intrusive to the generel pve installation.
