See ZoL bug report.
aka Illumos 6513
Short summary: Pools with hole_birth feature enabled are susceptible to
irreversible damage interfering with, in particular, proper zfs send/receive
behavior. The bug fix is in 0.6.5.8, but does not repair damage already
inflicted to the pool.
>From the ZoL bugreport, user pcd1193182:
> The fix for illumos 6513 will solve this problem, but not retroactively.
> In other words, any pools that already have this state will not be fixed;
> on such pools, the hole BPs already have their birth times set to zero,
> and zfs has no way of telling which ones are bugged and which are right.
> Any new pools, created after the fix has been applied, will work.
