ZFS on GoFlex running Debian 5.x.x

I'm currently running the latest uBoot (2017.07) for my GoFlex Home with Debian-5.2.9-kirkwood-tld-1 but I can't get ZFS to install. I've been following the OpenZFS Instructions but DKMS outputs:

configure: error: 
	*** None of the expected "bdi_setup" interfaces were detected.
	*** This may be because your kernel version is newer than what is
	*** supported, or you are using a patched custom kernel with
	*** incompatible modifications.
	***
	*** ZFS Version: zfs-2.0.3-9~bpo10+1
	*** Compatible Kernels: 3.10 - 5.10
	
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.2.9-kirkwood-tld-1 (armv5tel)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/zfs/2.0.3/build/make.log for more information.
dpkg: error processing package zfs-dkms (--configure):

Can this Kirkwood kernel support ZFS? If so, what's the correct way to install it successfully? I plan to attach a ZFS disk to this setup (not root on ZFS)

According to that page, the package you tried to install is an Intel 64-bit package.

ZFS probably still have no support for armv5 SoC. Last time I looked (a few years ago) to compile for Kirkwood, I also found that ZFS needs at least 2GB to run. So GoFlex Home/Net is not going to be enough, even if we can recompile for armv5.
