Given that I upgraded the zpool of a server that boots of a legacy boot partition, how would the red alert box saying

   "Updating UEFI ESP partitions (the partition the firmware boots from) has changed. See Boot Loader Changes for important details."

have caught my attention? No UEFI involved at my end, no zpools involved in the warning (I noticed the absence of the warning after running "zpool upgrade", so no harm done, but other users might be less fortunate).
