Subject: /boot/zfs directory missing so zpool.cache is not created
Date: Thu, 5 Aug 2010 20:28:54 +0200
Package: zfsutils
Version: 8.1-1

When creating a pool with the zpool command as follows;
  zpool create tank mirror ad1 ad2

The zpool.cache file is not get created, if manually creating
/boot/zfs it is however created as /boot/zfs/zpool.cache.

I suggest that the package zfsutils include the directory /boot/zfs.
