sys/boot/zfs out of bounds warning

looking at sys/boot things this morning, noted that there's a pretty
obvious warning about an out of bounds access.  I suspect that I don't
see a layer of abstraction here that makes this ok, but I'm not sure.

It seems like if this wasn't valid memory, things would go pretty badly 
in zfs_lookup().  Is there a better way to do this memcpy() such that it
doesn't trip a warning here?
