Hello dear maintainers,

It seems that I had found a cause of many build bugs of zfs-dkms against recent kernels, here is my comment in upstream repo: https://git.io/JfagN.

In two words: something is changed in splitting kernel headers between arch-specific, e.g. -amd64 package and for any arch (-common), so ZFS doesn’t find needed headers because they was moved to -common package. The following command fixed build of zfs-dkms for me:

sudo rsync -a /usr/src/linux-headers-5.6.0-1-common/ /usr/src/linux-headers-5.6.0-1-amd64/
