Yes, if you have your base system on zfs you have to installworld with
the old kernel booted.
Here is what i did.
installkernel, reboot, if the kernel boots fine (zfs will obviously not
work and show messages like "internal error: out of memory"), boot
kernel.old, installworld, reboot. Everything should be fine.
I think this should be added to UPDATING with better wording of course
;-). This is going to bite all users who have /, /usr, $SRCDIR or
$OBJDIR on zfs i think.
AFAIK this will be needed for -CURRENT and for the 7.2 -> 7.3 update.
