Ah, found another bogosity in the code:
--- a/sys/cddl/contrib/opensolaris/uts/common/fs/zfs/spa.c
+++ b/sys/cddl/contrib/opensolaris/uts/common/fs/zfs/spa.c
@@ -3925,8 +4117,6 @@ spa_import_rootpool(const char *name)
 		return (error);

-	spa_history_log_version(spa, LOG_POOL_IMPORT);
 	spa_config_enter(spa, SCL_ALL, FTAG, RW_WRITER);
 	spa_config_exit(spa, SCL_ALL, FTAG);

This previously "worked" only because the pool version was zero and thus the
action was a NOP anyway.
