Please don't use anything other than = for the kernel version!

The last version of this package allowed the kernel to update without the ZFS modules. Of course, it would have helped had I noticed the warnings from mkinitcpio, and resurrecting an unbootable system can provide hours of entertainment. Even so, this is not always convenient. ;)

@demizer Thanks! This adds slight confusion now, but nothing major:

Just have to know if you want the git version or the stable version. Thanks!

@ejstacey, I added the stanza to zfs-linux package since that is the package replacing zfs-git. Thanks!

Is it possible to set a 'replaces' stanza for zfs-git? Right now I can't upgrade my system from your old repos/packages.

$ pacman -S zfs-linux-git linux

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: spl-git: installing linux (4.5.1-1) breaks dependency 'linux=4.4.5-1'
:: zfs-git: installing linux (4.5.1-1) breaks dependency 'linux=4.4.5-1'

I *think* if you have a 'replaces' in there, I should be able to upgrade (spl-linux-git would need a 'replaces' line for 'spl-git' too).
