Description Ngie Cooper freebsd_committer 2016-01-03 08:54:40 UTC
I tried adding `options ZFS` to sys/conf/NOTES as part of r293070 [1], and unfortunately caused build errors with `LINT` because of name collisions between zfs(4) and zlib(9). I reverted the change in r293091 [2].

This bug is being filed to track the issue and (eventually) fix it.

This will likely need to be fixed by consolidating the two copies of zlib into one copy, and might require upgrading zlib in the kernel to something more recent..
