[Bug 1491729] Re: dkms: add module build ordering for ZFS on Linux
Sounds like enough reason to justify it for an SRU for Trusty. Any
specific module examples that need this?

dkms: add module build ordering for ZFS on Linux
Status in dkms package in Ubuntu:
Status in dkms source package in Wily:
(updated now from a FFe to a SRU for Wily)
SRU request, Wily.
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).
Install Wily zfs, occasionally the build ordering will be zfs and the spl, and the zfs DKMS build will fail because spl is not yet built. With the fix, build ordering for zfs will always occur in spl, then zfs order because it uses the new BUILD_DEPENDS directive.
Note: The upload will trigger the testing of all DKMS modules, so it'll get an adequate beating by britney (according to Martin Pitt).
DKMS package builds will fail.
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
