Because #:substitutable? isn't set appropriately in dependents,
substitute servers exist, ZFS can be used on substitute servers and someone using the substitute server might have a sufficiently similar system configuration to do substitution of a store item containing a
copy of the ZFS binary.

So, simply using ZFS in ‘kernel-loadable-modules’ would be enough to trigger this misbehavior? That sounds like a pretty serious issue. Would it be possible to have the substitute servers filter on the #:substitutable flag?

This is getting out of scope, though. I don't really want this patch to go in without /some/ documentation regarding how modules get looked up, so if anyone has an alternate module and use-case, I'll just swap it in for the ZFS one.
