Bug#651624: Booting from zfs root seems to not work 8.3 and 10.0 however work
Booting from a zfs root filesystem (created with the daily installer
and a 8.2 kernel) fails with the kfreebsd 9 kernel: kfreebsd can mount
a root filesystem and the kernel drops in the manual root filesystem
selection dialog. This happens both, with the 8.2 style "old" zpool
format as well as the "new" zpool format 28. In contrast
experimental's -10 and 8.3 kernel both boot fine here.
From within the netboot-9 installer the zfs pool is always marked as
damaged while the -8 based one thinks it is fine btw.
