Could we please have zfs_decrypt_fs functionality? (See shamer's comment.) It would be much appreciated!

mount.zfs does not work:

mount -t zfs zroot/data/default /mnt/ filesystem 'zroot/data/default' cannot be mounted at '/mount' due to canonicalization error 2.

Thank you. I've submitted an upstream fix as

The addition of the python3-fake soft link to /bin/true causes the utility program arc_summary not to be included in the package file. I assume this is because the upstream configurator needs to determine if a python3 or python2 version should be used and can't do that with the fake python.

There are other python scripts in the package so some version of python is a "soft" dependency., if not on the build at least on the programs themselves.

New to Arch, so sorry if this the the wrong way to notify you; I'm open to gentle education if there is a more correct way.

zfs.initcpio.hook does not yet have zfs_decrypt_fs functionality that is present in

This can prevent being able to boot into an encrypted root.

I've found a problem, zfs.initcpio.hook does not seem to honor canmount=off on datasets.

patch is something like

    canmount=$(zfs get -H -o value canmount "${dataset}")
    if [ "${canmount}" = "off" ] ; then

please use "git shallow clone" to save traffic.

81.64 MiB :full clone
  5.56 MiB :shallow clone

--> less by factor 15

sample call:

git clone --depth=1 --recurse-submodules -b zfs-0.7.13

Valid point, but this should then be in zfs-dkms which provides the module and depends on the utils.

I removed it from spl-dkms too, because namespacing: is already a package and it sure isn't a kernel module. Didn't consider that zfs wouldn't have the same problem.

Thanks for putting this up. Unfortunately, this breaks some dependencies, because the PKGBUILD should include provides=zfs. Otherwise I can't have zfs-auto-snapshot installed.
