Or ZFS with zfs-fuse on Linux side. But then you have to be careful
about versioning (zfs-fuse is usually a newer ZFS version than
kFreeBSD can read).

I've succesfully tested LVM+UFS in the past.  I didn't test LVM+ZFS,
but then again it'd defeat the purpose since functionality of ZFS and
LVM overlap.

I wouldn't recommend this, partitionless disks don't play well with GRUB.
