Hello GRUB!

So I ported GRUB's ZFS support to U-boot in 2012, and have gone back to refresh it today. Excellent work, and thanks, on the new features, like lz4, and raidz booting!

While doing that work, I came across of few tiny things that perhaps would be appreciated in GRUB. (nits really..) But if this is just annoying noise, feel free to close this ticket.

Minor memory leak in rare error case, dmu_read() allocated zapbuf:

again at line 2598 and line 2639.

The directory listing code here:
passes the "mze_value" unmolested to (eventually) dnode_get(). But it should be filtered by ZFS_DIRENT_OBJ() as in:

( used correctly in the file reading code: )

Which makes listing work here. But it confuses me a little that nobody has complained that listings do not work correctly in GRUB for non-Solaris pools, like ZOL?

That is all.
