Looks like zfsutils 8.3 still has Breaks in place for 8.1/8.2 kernels,
since 8.3~svn226546-3, so I guess it is safe to migrate to testing, and
bug #648744 is unnecessary?
zfsutils-udeb doesn't use Breaks, because the 8.2 and 9.0 images are
must both be present, so...

partman-zfs and zfsutils 8.3 both get installed without a choice,
instead of being listed in the menu of optional installer modules. I
don't know why. It sounds like the .isinstallable feature is only
supposed to hide items from that menu?
I just tried another install using partman-zfs 16 and kfreebsd-8, which
allows zpool/volumes (v15) to be created with zfsutils 8.3 and it
generates a zpool.cache, but partman is still not listing any volumes as
If that issue could be fixed somehow, maybe it would be unnecessary to
try to include zfstils-udeb 8.2 in the installer?
