I'm not good at understanding licenses and how they affect or exclude one another, at all. However, I see that 

* spl and spl-dkms have:
                               License:        GPLv2+

* while zfs and zfs-dkms have:
                               License:        CDDL

Is that a problem??

Debian just decided to include zfs as contrib with a dkms packet.



And ubuntu says their legal team indicates it is legal to incluye zfs.

If it is only provided as source..yes
Provided in binary form..NO

Please see and read

Comment 10 Alejandro Vargas 2016-08-16 09:03:02 CEST
Well... a dkms packet that contains the source and a builds the binary at installation may be a solution.
