That would be Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL),
derived from the Mozilla Public License.

For those who don't have leaf accounts (or even those who do), the Sun
ZFS community is at http://opensolaris.org/os/community/zfs/ with a
source tour at http://opensolaris.org/os/community/zfs/source/. I'm
really impressed by the documentation available, including all relevant
man pages, an admin guide, and the on-disk format.
