In addition to what has already been mentioned by Ivan Voras, make sure 
your /boot is not the subject to strangeness. Specifically, imported pools 
are kept track of in /boot/zfs/zpool.cache. If you somehow have multiple 
versions of your /boot, or it is read-only somehow, you may see problems like 

(For example, if your real /boot during boot is different from the location 
actually at /boot once the system has mounted all filesystems, and ZFS is 
loaded at boot due to loader variable.)
