I build three sets of out-of-tree kmods, just ZFS, Vbox (which I don't think were even used/inserted) and nvidia-drivers. The only one I can conceivably see taking down those kernel subsystems are the ZFS filesystem drivers. But I'll try to see if any of the other two were responsible later tonight. PS. I don't actually even use arch anymore, but the arch community remains a very valuable resource so I still come here ;) PPS. I'm not brave enough to use the ZFS git master packages... not by a long shot. I have many terabytes of data in my ZFS pool

I haven't had any issues on 4.15 so far. Did you try using the git packages with 4.15? If you get the same problem there, it might be an upstream issue

Tried zfs on 4.15 with just the patch linked below, definitely not ready for primetime. Huge issues with the filesystem and even block device subsystems totally borking out (luckily didn't lose any data, other than some small files getting corrupted because of unclean shutdowns). Stay on 4.14.x for now

Easy! Get Oracle to relicense away from the CDDL to be non hostile to the GPL.

You're not the first to want this.

What do we have to do to push this as an official package and get your more support?

ZFS is an incredible filesystem, having it as a rootfs can set archlinux apart.

Ah, you're right. For some reason I thought it had

Yep, it hasn't changed though

justinkb commented on 2018-01-29 23:29

This looks like an updated version of that patch that actually got merged upstream, and signed-off by one of the main developers of zfs, are you aware of it?

minextu commented on 2018-01-29 22:25

SPL got already patched for 4.15, you just need to apply the patch like done here: There's also a pending pull request for archzfs (

I can't find any info about linux 4.15 on any of the online resources available for openzfs, I've basically looked everywhere, support forums, github issues, the website, nobody is saying anything about it. Anyone got an ETA on when it'll be available? If it'll take long, I'll have to work out a workaround for my use case, that's why I'm asking.
