If the ubuntu-zfs and zfs-initramfs packages are installed, then the
zfs-grub support is kept intact during an `apt-get upgrade`, but
overwritten during an `apt-get dist-upgrade`.
Installing the APT pin file with the enhanced grub package is probably
the best solution. Fajar's example works properly. Locking the
packages with dpkg or an APT frontend is an alternative.
However, before I do this, I want to check the policy manual regarding
whether this is allowed.
I dislike incrementing the epoch number because it can cause problems
during major upgrades.
