ZFS on Linux: Kernel updates

Just as I would expect, updating both the kernel's of the machine that is running VirtualBox and its virtual machines and the ZFS enabled Linux virtual machine was completed with absolutely no issues. I originally was more concern on updating the host VirtualBox machine's kernel given that I've never really done this in the past using the additional VirtualBox Extension Pack add-on before, on the other hand I wasn't to concern regarding the ZFS kernel module, given that it was installed as part of a dkms kernel module rpm. Which regardless of what people think about dkms modules, as a sysadmin that have worked with Linux systems with them (proprietary), it's certainly a relief knowing that little or no additional work is needed to rebuild the respective module after updating to a newer kernel.
