Thanks for your reply!
The kern.cam.ada.legacy_aliases=0 indeed makes the /dev/ad6 device go
away. However, unlike I suspected, it did not solve the zpool import
problem. It still lists my pool as corrupted. If I use the zpool
import -d /dev/gpt as you suggested, the pool displays as ONLINE and I
can import it just fine. Using -d /dev works too, so I guess this
works fine as a workaround.
Still, can I assume this is a bug that will be fixed in time before
