Okay sorry, some of that I ought to file separate bugs for, but
regarding this bug I was really trying to say:

* I managed to install to a new ZFS root under kfreebsd 8.2, upgrade to
kfreebsd 9 and still boot it;  so what did we do differently for
Christoph to have this issue?

* how did Christoph create his zpool and ZFS root filesystem?  because
for me this seemed broken in recent d-i daily images, due to the wrong
zfsutils being included;

* I'm curious, did Christoph actually boot with kfreebsd 8.2 before
installing kfreebsd 9?  or did he install kfreebsd 9 sometime during the
install and try to boot with that kernel first?
