Would be great if this package can be guarded with something like linux < 4.7 to avoid an incompatible update because the package-maintainer is sleeping.

Great! That patch gets me working for now until the upstream stuff gets done. Thanks for your help!

Thanks a bunch! This (and your patch for zfs-dkms) worked beautifully

Here's a patch for the pkgbuild that adds a linux 4.7 compatibility patch to the build:
https://gist.github.com/burberger/3c966a089529b33714fd8827c4b12e49

This is a temporary fix until the zfsonlinux upstream release has 4.7 support.

I'm unable to get the spl module to compile with the newest kernel update (4.7.0-1). I seem to be getting the same issue as https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs/issues/4927, but the solution given there requires having the Linux source available. Any idea if/how I can fix this?

Arch has now moved to 4.7.0 kernel, causing this package some trouble. What all needs to be done to bring this up to speed?

@isiachi
Thanks. However, after compiling the new kernel and installing it, I get this:

-> Running build hook: [zfs]
==> ERROR: module not found: `zavl'

@lockheed

If you remove the zfs package the old module are still loaded so you can simple install zfs-dkms.

I have a technical question, sort of removing the tablecloth underneath the dinner set...

I have a server with ZFS on root which runs on regular zfs packages (non-dkms). I need to migrate to zfs-dkms (and friends) to get support for non-stock Arch kernel.

The question is: how can I do that?

To install -dkms packages, I need to remove regular packages. But if I do that, I am afraid I will not be able to boot (or even operate on root prior to reboot) anymore because the whole root is on ZFS.

Can someone propose some sane course of action?
