I have no idea how you got yours working, but this bug has plagued me ever
since I started testing ZFS on Linux. It fails to mount on reboot on ZoL
created pools, on Solaris created pools and on ZFS-FUSE created pools. The
other two versions automount just fine.

I tried your tips, both /etc/default/zfs and re-setting the pool properties
(which already had the correct values, but with a "SOURCE" value of
"default" - after re-setting them, they switched to "local"). Neither works.
I have to manually `sudo zfs mount -a` to mount my pool.

If this isn't a bug, then can someone shed some light on this?
