Thanks for that. It prompted me to spin up a Ubuntu 16.10 VM and, guess
what? it works!

I used the exact same script to create my zpool and then tested in Grub,
where the following worked flawlessly:

grub> search --set --label testpool
grub> ls /ROOT/ubuntu@/boot

The expected files were listed, no errors or warnings. I did, however,
have to "insmod part_gpt" but I did not need to "insmod zfs".

So it must be some issue with the Grub version on Arch. I would have
expected that to be closer to vanilla than Ubuntu's but then maybe
that's the problem. Like you said, I don't know if Ubuntu's grub
contains any special ubuntu-specific patches.

Perhaps I should ask this over on the Arch ML ?
