    update to zfs-initramfs/focal zfs-zed/focal zfsutils-linux/focal but not modules?

    Ok so the following packages have upgrades:

    Code:
    zfs-initramfs/focal 0.8.2-3ubuntu1 amd64 [upgradable from: 0.8.1-1ubuntu17] 
    zfs-zed/focal 0.8.2-3ubuntu1 amd64 [upgradable from: 0.8.1-1ubuntu17] 
    zfsutils-linux/focal 0.8.2-3ubuntu1 amd64 [upgradable from: 0.8.1-1ubuntu17]
    and that's all fine and well, it's a update from 0.8.1 to 0.8.2, which is great! However:

    Code:
    $ modinfo zfs | head -5 
    filename:       /lib/modules/5.3.0-18-generic/kernel/zfs/zfs.ko 
    version:        0.8.1-1ubuntu12
    The ZFS module itself, that's loaded by the kernel is version 0.8.1, and I don't see the package it belongs too being updated:

    Code:
    dpkg -S 5.3.0-18-generic/kernel/zfs/zfs.ko 
    linux-modules-5.3.0-18-generic: /lib/modules/5.3.0-18-generic/kernel/zfs/zfs.ko
    
    $ sudo apt list --upgradable | grep linux-modules 
     
    WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts. 
     
    ....
    So umm, if the packages that control how to talk to zfs and the utilities are updated but the kernel module isn't, how in the world is that supposed to work?

    Thanks!

    I believe the kernel needs to be compiled with the appropriate module.
