The RAIDZ bit might be significant, if it isn't calculating the
overhead properly on old pools for some reason.

What were the zpool and FreeBSD versions before/after the upgrade? The
output of "zpool history -i storage"/"zdb -h storage" might shed light
on any changes.

Also try "zdb -bb" - this will go through all block pointers and
verify there are no leaks; unfortunately it might take as long as a
scrub. :(
