            Bug ID: 191908
           Summary: [zfs] newer kernel and old userland binary
                    compatibility broken
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.0-STABLE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: Needs Triage
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org

I tried to update my 10-STABLE machine (full ZFS including root)
from r268480 (built on Jul 10) to r268734 (built on Jul 16), but after
make installkernel and reboot into single user mode, I couldn't proceed
further because "zfs mount -a" crashed immediately with segfault.  

Because only read-only root fs was available, I couldn't do any
debugging (/usr resides in a separate fs).  Actually any zfs or 
zpool commands seemed to crash immediately.  Of course I couldn't 
make installworld.

I guess this incompatibility had been introduced by recent several ZFS 
related MFC/MFV between two builds.  I believe old userland should be 
usable with a newer kernel (or I cannot follow the standard install
procedure).  If it is an expected behavior, it should be mentioned in
