Needs to be updated for Python 3.8

I don't know if this is the right place, when I tried switching over to this zfs-utils package (from the one provided on archzfs), my system would not boot properly -- it would complain about being unable to import the zpools (was in use by another system with the hostid=0).

When I switched back over to the zfs-utils from archzfs, my system works once again.

aarch64 is not an officially supported architecture for this PKGBUILD, since I don't exactly test it on such architectures. It failing to work is therefore not very surprising.

I guess you can do any necessary followup in that upstream bug report, hopefully upstream can get it into a state of "working out of the box" so that makepkg --ignorearch works. But I'm not investing any of my own time in this...

To build on aarch64, config.sub and config.guess have to be updated:

Since dracut is in the official Arch repo, could we please include the dracut files here? Line 60 just needs to be deleted.

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.
