Did you mean 8.3?  That's what I see the latest netinst/businesscard
images try to use, regardless of which kernel is used during install.
Your .isinstallable script is right, but it's being ignored.  Maybe
because zfsutils is considered a 'required' installer module, and not an
optional user choice from the menu.  Instead, it's just using the latest
available version from the install media.

Yep, that's what I was seeing -- unless I downgrade to zfsutils-udeb 8.2
whilst in the installer, then going back into partman.
