[Bug 1491729] Re: [FFE]: dkms: add module build ordering for ZFS on Linux


Forget the above, the following change log items are probably better:

* Add-POST_BUILD-to-the-dkms_conf_variables-list.patch: Add POST_BUILD directive, and implement
  a  BUILD_DEPENDS directive that instructs `dkms autoinstall` to build Linux modules in a specific order to
  ensure ZFS to build after SPL.
* Add-support-for-forcing-modules-installation.patch:  Force the installation of a module if it is listed in

  [FFE]: dkms: add module build ordering for ZFS on Linux

Status in dkms package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  Feature Freeze Exception Request:

  build ordering to build ZFS on Linux (ZoL) is required, the motivating
  case is for ordering such as modules such as zfs -> spl

  Without this, we can have incorrect ordering which causes DKMS build
  failures for multiple kernel module projects, such as ZFS (where ZFS
  requires the ZFS support module spl to be built first).

  Pull in fixes from the ZFS on Linux project that enable this ordering
  to DKMS.
