[My previous comment was incorrect. I had the wrong file in the wrong
package.]

Colin, with grub2 in yakkety being patched, we should be ready for zfs-
initramfs in yakkety to drop /lib/udev/rules.d/60-zpool.rules and
"Conflicts: grub2 << 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu5".

Bug description:
  [Impact]
  Installs over ZFS where a ZFS disk is expected to be used as a root device.

  [Test case]
  - Run update-grub on a system with a ZFS root filesystem.

  [Regression Potential]
  Installs relying on the current broken behavior to avoid listing other 
operating systems in grub menu may find that new entries are added.

  update-grub runs /usr/sbin/grub-probe

  Without libzfslinux support compiled in, /usr/sbin/grub-probe runs
  ["zpool", "status", poolname] to find out ZFS info.

  zpool responds with device names as used at (I think!) pool creation
  time. Often, this is /dev/disk/by-id/... names, without the path.

  grub-probe then parses the output, and takes the names of devices, and
  if they do not start with a "/", it prepends "/dev/".

  It then tests the existence of the path name of the device. it fails.

  grub-probe then returns  something like

  /usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of `/dev
  /ata-ST31000333AS_99999999-part1'.

  The actual path is of course /dev/disk/by-
  id/ST31000333AS_99999999-part1

  It can prepend smarter than "/dev" or it can understand ZFS natively,
  to fix the problem.
