Bug Description

[Impact]

 * Ubuntu enables automatic TRIM / DISCARD on all filesystems that support it, such that on SSD-like storage devices the performance over time is improved. ZFS, as setup by ubiquity, did not used to enable autotrim option. But it should have it enabled.

[Test Case]

 1. Complete install using zfs
 2. Reboot and login
 3. Check that the zfs pools have autotrim feature enabled with the following command:
# zpool get autotrim

Both pools must have the autotrim property set to 'on'.
NAME PROPERTY VALUE SOURCE
bpool autotrim on local
rpool autotrim on local

You can also check the status of trimming with:
# zpool status -t rpool
  pool: rpool
 state: ONLINE
  scan: none requested
config:

        NAME STATE READ WRITE CKSUM
        rpool ONLINE 0 0 0
          nvme0n1p4 ONLINE 0 0 0 (100% trimmed, completed at mer. 03 juin 2020 07:50:22)

[Regression Potential]

 * When autotrim is in progress, i/o performance may be observed as stalling. However, periodic trim outweighs the benefits. Advanced operators may choose to disable autotrim, and execute it manually during regularly scheduled maintenance windows.

[Other Info]

 * Shipped in groovy already
