* Fix ZFS shrinker deadlock with xattrs (LP: #1839521)
- Upstream ZFS fix 31b6111fd92a ("Kill zp->z_xattr_parent to prevent pinning")
and ddae16a9cf0b ("xattr dir doesn't get purged during iput") fix a deadlock
in shrinker path when a xattr directory inode and its xattr inode are in the
same disposal list and the xattr dir inode is evicted before the xattr inode.

* Fix modules not loaded on debian tests (LP: #1813749)
- ADT tests are failing with some Xenial packages because the zfs
module is not loaded before the tests start. This can be fixed
by loading the module on the main test script (kernel-smoke-test)
as done by the package built for later series.

* Fix error exit when using -t option (LP: #1769937)
- Upstream ZFS fix 4ceb8dd6fdfd ("Fix 'zpool create -t <tempname>'")
fixes error message and error exit when using the -t option
when creating a pool.

* Fix zpl_mount() deadlock (LP: #1781364)
- Upstream ZFS fix ac09630d8b0b ("Fix zpl_mount() deadlock")
fixes deadlock on multiple parallelized mount/umounts

* Allow multiple mounts of zfs datasets (LP: #1759848)
- Change zpl_mount() to call sget() directly with it's own test
callback. Passing the objset_t object as the fs data allows
checking if a superblock already exists for the dataset, and in
that case we just need to return a new reference for the sb's
root dentry.

* Revert previous fix, re-work by checking for
a container using /run/systemd/container and
set timeout to zero for zfs list or zpool status
when running inside a container (LP: #1760173)

* Add ZFS 0.7.0 compat fix for zvol_id (LP: #1763067)
The BLKZNAME ioctl msg size has changed in ZFS 0.7.0 so
add forwards compat handling for this ioctl by retrying
with this newer msg size if the first call fails

* Fix mmap'd libaio read on non-prefaulted page deadlock (LP: #1754584)
- Revert previous fix as there still is a potential for deadlock
on the prefaulted page(s). Resolve the issue by only taking a
reference on the page when copying it and not the page lock.
The inode range lock protects against concurrent updates via
zfs_read() and zfs_write().

* Add ZFS 0.7.0 kernel ioctl binary compat shim (LP: #1737761)
Detect ZFS kernel driver version and copy zfs ioctl command to the
newer ZFS 0.7.0 ioctl command layout.
