           Summary: 14.0 relnotes lack bios bootloader upgrade warning

The 14.0 release notes specifically call out if you have an EFI system then you
must reinstall the bootloader before running `zpool upgrade`

> Note for systems that boot via EFI
> [...]
>  After a system upgrade, but before doing a zpool upgrade, the boot loader on the ESP must be updated, or the system may become unbootable

They neglect to mention you must reinstall the boot loader when booting in
traditional BIOS mode.  The mention of one without the other may lead to people
making an incorrect assumption that it is not necessary on the other.  

Suggestion is make a more generalised warning that updating the boot loader is
required regardless of whether you boot BIOS or EFI.
