  * When running on a ZFS filesystem udevadm returns an error
    which can be ignored. (LP: #1847228)
  * On zfs 0.8 cache is in /etc, do not attempt to copy it from
    /boot/zfs when it doesn't exist.

  [ Iain Lane ]
  * Drop zfs-0.8-support.patch. We're goind to do this via the main
    grub-installer package in the archive instead.
  * Handle ZFS option not being implemented on KDE frontend
    (LP: #1847228)
  * Automatic update of included source packages: grub-installer
    1.128ubuntu14. (LP: #1847211)

  [ Michael Hudson-Doyle ]
  * ubiquity/ mark any already-installed packages
    as manually installed. (LP: #1841672)
