Sun are extremely unlikely to release ZFS under GPLv2.
That said, it is likely that CDDL and GPLv3 code could be combined, judging by the current GPLv3 drafts at least. Just have to wait and see (and persuade Linus to reconsider the GPLv2-only licence).
There are people working on ZFS for non-Solaris systems, iirc there are efforts to do ports to BSD and Linux FUSE.
