Thanks, this is very helpful.

I just checked another machine running Jessie with a standard installation
of spl-dkms and zfs-dkms, and this is exactly where the 8 modules were

My "testing" machine has the modules all over the place as a result of
various experiments. I guess I need to delete all these modules before I
continue, otherwise rebooting will always be an adventure.

As you mentioned in another message today, I see that spl-dkms is
very recently available on testing and I think zfs-dkms is not far
behind, so perhaps the problems with updating ZoL on Debian testing will
soon go away.
