  * Clean up symlink'd /etc/zfs/zed.d/ (LP: #1757939)
    If an existing zed-functions is a symlink then this needs removing
    as the script in newer ZFS releases is no longer symlink'd and we
    always want to upgrade to the newer updated script.

  broken conffile symlink left behind on upgrade

Status in zfs-linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The information attached to this report will claim that /etc/zfs/zed.d
  / is a modified conffile because it has been
  "deleted".  What it actually is, is a dangling symlink.

  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    45 Feb 17  2017 /etc/zfs/zed.d/zed- -> /usr/lib/zfs-linux/zfs/zed.d/

  I also have /etc/zfs/zed.d/ which is a real
  file but has not been installed.

  zfs-zed needs to correctly handle this transition on upgrade.
