Me and Peter have been checking the downstream patches that the Debian
packages from the zfsonlinux.org repository carry for Debian jessie [1].
The goal is ensuring a smooth transition/upgrade to the packages that
hopefully Debian stretch will ship.

Personally, I don't like at all the idea of merging new features still
not upstreamed. But this can be discussed.

Maybe I'm overlooking something, and what I think is just a new feature
that can wait for upstream to merge it, it is a critical feature for
someone using it already in production.

So, the purpose of this mail is to ask for feedback regarding this.
I did a quick review of the patches and annotated those that I think we
should try to merge and those I think we should skip until merged
upstream. Feel free to add your comments on the pad itself or to reply
to this e-mail.
