Thankyou for the correction.

The DKMS hotfix instructions were are based on my notes for patching different
distributions, they are somewhat old notes and I had not realized that link
needed -L. I learned of this issue a few hours ago and scrambled to do what I
could to handle it while Brian is out of town. The email went out about 90
minutes after I learned of the problem from Richard Connon through IRC.

I plan to send an update to -announce this evening (EST) with corrections and
the status of downstream backport progress. So far, I have heard from the Debian
and Ubuntu maintainers. Debian has the backport while Ubuntu will have it later
today.  Hopefully, I will hear from a few others between now and then.

On that topic, I have taken the liberty of notifying a few other consumers such
as Jonathan Vasquez's fork of System Rescue CD (that adds ZFS support) and
Sabayon, which does packaging independently of Gentoo. At this point, I have
reached out to everyone shipping ZoL with whom I have contact.
