I'm trying to get ZFS On Linux (ZoL) to work from boot (debian-installer)
on linux-amd64 and I'm getting quite good results (I've just created my
first pool).

But I'm unsure on how to proceed. I also have a kFreeBSD (amd64) in another
VM (VirtualBox) and it seems to have the same 'problem'.

What happens is that I create a pool (mirrored). But it doesn't have a
mountpoint (and I can't seem to change it) and it (D-I) refuses to continue
because it can't find a root filesystem.

Trying to select one of the partitions which is marked as 'zfs', I get an
error saying it's in use by a ZFS pool...

I'm looking at the install documentation for kFreeBSD but it doesn't really
help (it doesn't contain any information on how to install on ZFS).


The commits is quite simple:
