OpenZFS 2.0.0 was compatible with Linux kernels up through 5.9 while now OpenZFS 2.0.1 adds Linux 5.10 kernel support and early compatibility patches around the still in development Linux 5.11.

OpenZFS 2.0.1 also adds Autoconf 2.70 compatibility, a number of memory leak fixes, several FreeBSD specific fixes, compatibility with BusyBox's mktemp, and a number of other general fixes and continuous integration updates.
