I am the upstream maintainer of this module.
The compilation problem has been fixed as of version 2.2.6.
I recommend all users to upgrade to the latest version immediately because some other important fixes are included since 2.1.1.

By the way, I will release 2.2.7 or 2.3.0 soon. Keep watching.

Hello Andy, or anyone else affected,

Accepted dm-writeboost into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at . Thank you in advance!

Thanks Akira, we probably should think about a 2.2.6 upgrade then. But usually to backport complete new versions into older releases needs to be argued with the archive admins. At least if the delta is larger. But sounds like worth following up on at latest when we have to go through this again once the next release will be available back in xenial.
