Check whether you have "ghost" zfs labels on your main drives, besides
the expected ones in the zfs partitions:

zdb -l /dev/ada0
zdb -l /dev/ada1

if yours is the same problem as mine was, you'll find the last two of 
the 4 labels valid, and the kernel will then happily use this wrong label
(it will plain ignore the partitions) just to fail to mount the pool later.
I see no good reason to upgrade the root pool in such a situation, besides
making a fallback to the working system impossible.
