Some of my systems on 16.04 (with zfs 0.6.x from both normal and hwe
kernels) would simply refuse to do writes to any zfs dataset after
some time, with syslog saying tasks stuck on arc_reclaim and/or
arc_prune, making it unusable. Using zfs 0.7.x from ppa fixed it, but
not ideal.

Having 18.04 with 0.7.5+bugfixes is great.
