Package: zfs-dkms
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

Please consider packaging ZFS 0.7.1.  The new 0.7.0 release, which released on
July 26, 2017, includes a number of valuable new features including better
memory management (ARC uses scatter lists rather than virtual memory,
minimizing fragmentation and Compressed ARC), improved performance (vectorized
RAID-Z and fletcher4 math, faster resilvering, improved metadata performance),
resumable and compressed 'zfs send' (invaluable for very large sends!), and
improved statistics (SMART data, IO latency, average request size).

Thanks for packing ZFS for Debian,
