Default ZFS filenames encoding misrepresentation with non-ASCII characters

It seems like it is a relatively common problem but I couldn't manage to find an explanation or fix online.

I copied data from UFS to ZFS and at least one folder containing characters out of the ASCII table, such as "ö", is now set to "??".

Is there a way to force Unicode on ZFS? What can I do to keep filename encoding integrity?

Here's how I fixed my issue
Add LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 to the :setenv in /etc/loging.conf. When using an
X terminal progrm, pick a unicode font, e.g.

I don't think that the system console has unicode support, you should
probably use a ISO 8859-15 font, e.g. iso15-8x16.fnt, see kbdmap(1).

Innumerable souls, with the same problem, will be thankful to you for posting the solution
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
