Bug description:

   * zfs services fail on firstboot if zfs-utils is integrated into the
  deployment image.

   * Output from systemd -
  sudo systemctl --failed
  ● zfs-import-scan.service loaded failed failed Import ZFS pools by device 
  ● zfs-mount.service loaded failed failed Mount ZFS filesystems

   * This is particularly frustrating for users who use automated
  monitoring as it means virtual machines must always be restarted
  before showing as clean.

   * This failure is due to zfs services starting up before /etc/mtab
  has a chance to be symlinked to /proc/mounts.

  [Test Case]

   1. Grab a stock xenial image, and unpack it and add zfs-utils to it.  Repack 
   2. Boot machine
   3. Check systemctl --failed.

  [Regression Potential]

   * none expected, patch has been intensively tested by the upsteam zfs
  test script suite.

   * This is a upstream commit merge in 0.7.0.

   * A ubuntu package has been tested (including the upstream commit) by
  a user of the community facing this bug, and confirmed it addresses
  the problem (see comment #7).

  [Other Info]

  * The "reading" is redirected to /proc/self/mounts. 
  The writing to /etc/mtab. Some distros still need that. The current hope is 
to replace the writing (and maybe reading) with libmount, in a second phase.
