If a standalone libmd upload is holding things up, the GPL
incompatibility could also be resolved by linking libmd statically
into zfsutils as you proposed initially.
As for #645305 I'll take care of this in GRUB side.
The only remaining problem is that your update is to 9-STABLE. I
think it'd be bad to upgrade zfsutils to 9-STABLE in Sid since the
Wheezy is due in 6 months and 9.0 isn't even released yet. Perhaps
you could look at resyncing your patches with 8-STABLE?
Note that in terms of features 8-STABLE receives backports for almost
everything, it's a lot like the Testing/Unstable separation in Debian
(this will change when 9.0 is released though).
