Speed up ZFS on linux resilvering times

You can speed up resilvering times on ZFS (on linux) by temporarily changing the following settings:

echo 0 > /sys/module/zfs/parameters/zfs_resilver_delay
echo 512 > /sys/module/zfs/parameters/zfs_top_maxinflight
echo 5000 > /sys/module/zfs/parameters/zfs_resilver_min_time_ms

To reset back to defaults, do:

echo 2 > /sys/module/zfs/parameters/zfs_resilver_delay
echo 32 > /sys/module/zfs/parameters/zfs_top_maxinflight
echo 3000 > /sys/module/zfs/parameters/zfs_resilver_min_time_ms

A reboot of the system should also reset these defaults.
